POMPEY’S match with Hull City on Saturday will go ahead despite the club’s cash flow problems.

Terri Mulgrew, of UHY Hacker Young, the administrators of the club’s parent company Convers Sports Initiatives (CSI), reassured fans by saying she cannot see anything stopping the match from being played.

But Ms Mulgrew said she could not predict what the effect of continuing further financial problems will be at future games held at Fratton Park.

The club’s bank accounts were frozen after HMRC issued it a winding-up petition over unpaid tax.

But Ms Mulgrew said: ‘I cannot see anything at the moment to stop Saturday’s game from happening.

‘Any games past that I don’t know but there is no real problem for Saturday’.

Pompey issued a statement earlier this week stating it is seeking a validation order from the court to unfreeze the accounts in order to pay staff wages and suppliers at forthcoming matches.

One of the bills facing Pompey is the policing of matches but neither Pompey or Hampshire Constabulary could comment.

However Supt Rick Burrows, of Hampshire Constabulary, said: ‘We want football to continue at Pompey and will work closely with the club to do that. Pompey belongs to the city and the fans.’
