Ryan Bird is returning to Pompey following his successful Cambridge loan spell.

The U’s were eager to extend the striker’s Abbey Stadium stay after netting nine times, including twice at Salisbury last night.

However, their hopes have been dashed after Pompey today instructed him to return to Fratton Park.

Bird will now compete with fellow forwards Michael Drennan, Patrick Agyemang, Ryan Taylor and Jake Jervis for squad spots for Saturday’s visit to Newport County.
