Southend 3-1 Pompey: They said what?

Have your say

Pompey’s trip to Crawley has been put back a day to accommodate Sky.

The Broadfield Stadium fixture will take place on Sunday, September 9, with a 3.30pm kick off.

The clash, which represents the first-ever between the clubs, is to be televised live on Sky.

Meanwhile, Pompey’s Good Friday (March 29) visit to Preston will now kick-off at 5pm.

The game has been switched to a later kick-off following a request made to Preston by the large local Catholic community.

The fixture had already been moved once – from Saturday, March 30 – to give both sides more time to recover for their Easter Monday fixtures.
