Pompey bid to get their second win under new boss Richie Barker when they take on Accrington at Fratton Park this Saturday.

And The News is giving you the chance to be there and experience it.

Four lucky fans can win a set of tickets to see this Saturday’s game.

Pompey will be battling for three points in their last match of a busy Christmas period which has seen them play five games in just 15 days.

The News is giving away the tickets for the family area at Fratton Park, in association with the Pompey’s 12th Man Pay4a PompeyPal scheme.

But we don’t want to hear from just anyone. We want the nominations to come in for all those people who really deserve a day out at Fratton Park.

Whether they have been going through a particularly tough time, find most days a struggle, or who have been a support for those people in their lives who have needed it, we want to know about them.

All we ask is that they don’t mind chatting to us about their nomination.

Tickets for previous fixtures have been given to a number of different people.

These include two boys from a children’s home and Samantha Cole, who loves Pompey so much her home in Auckland, New Zealand, has a Pompey sign in the window.

Sam cried when she found out the tickets were hers.

Editor of The News Mark Waldron, said: ‘We want to do this to underpin the fact that Pompey is a community club.

‘We have bought these tickets from Pompey’s 12th Man, which helps deserving people get to football matches, as a way for hard-working and deserving people to watch their football team in action.

The News is as much at the heart of the community both within Portsmouth and the surrounding area as Pompey is, so it seemed like an ideal plan to join the two together in this way.

‘We’ve already given tickets away, and we’ll be doing the same for every home game this season.’

To apply is simple. Email nominations for the tickets should be sent to ellie.pilmoor@thenews.co.uk by 5pm tomorrow.

Put both yours and the nominee’s address and telephone number on the submission. The winners and their nominees must be happy to be interviewed by one of our reporters.

All previous submissions have been kept.
