SECURITY procedures are in place to help avoid violent scenes at Pompey’s FA Cup replay at Aldershot Town.

There were problems before and after Pompey’s first round FA Cup game against Aldershot on Sunday, which ended 2-2. One person was arrested at the Milton Arms pub in Milton Road.

The replay will take place on Wednesday, November 19.

Steve Gibbs, head of media at Aldershot Town, said: ‘Aldershot Town condemn any violence which occurred in Portsmouth on Sunday, and will support any prosecutions which result from it. We hope that genuine Aldershot Town supporters were not involved in any such incidents.

‘Aldershot Town have in place a robust security procedure which has been successfully operated at a number of high-profile matches.

‘Segregation within the stadium, between home and away fans, is easily maintained, as visiting supporters enter via dedicated turnstiles at the opposite end of the stadium to home supporters. The club will work with police to ensure the town is peaceful on the day of the replay.’
