Kick-off at Fratton Park is at 3pm.

Meanwhile, the M27 is shut between Junction 3, at the slip road to the M271, and Junction 4 at the turn-off for the M3, until 6am on Monday.

Roadworks will be taking place to finish the final stage of the £19 million project to replace the old Romsey Road bridge.

In a tweet, Highways England said: ‘We'll reopen the motorway by 6am on Monday morning. Please plan your journey.’
