A CHARITY match will take place between Pompey and Russian Premier League side FC Rostov at 7.30pm on Wednesday.

It has been set up to raise money for the families of the Lokomotiv Laroslavl ice hockey team, who all died when their plane crashed in September.

The club has reduced its ticket prices from £10 to £2, with under-12s going free, in a bid to encourage more people to attend.
