Ahead of the first-round draw (Monday 7pm), here are a few Pompey FA Cup facts.

Pompey have not won a game in the competition since the 2010 semi-final when they beat Spurs.

Since then, they have fallen at the first hurdle on five straight occasions.

Pompey’s record home attendance came in the 1949 FA Cup (51,385 v Derby County).

They also hold the record attendance at the new Wembley – 89,874 vs Cardiff – in the 2008 success.

Boss Paul Cook has made three appearances in the FA Cup final – in the Irish version.

He led Sligo Rovers to the final for three successive seasons, losing in 2009 and winning both in 2010 and 2011.

Skipper Michael Doyle has made 49 appearances in the FA Cup in his career.

His best run came two seasons ago as he reached the semi-final with Sheffield United, losing to eventual runners-up Hull City.

Pompey won every game by a one-goal margin in their 2008 FA Cup victory.

They won every match 1-0, apart from the fourth-round win over Plymouth when they won 2-1.
