Pompey fans who cannot attend next Saturday's trip to AFC Wimbledon need not worry. 

Tickets are in high demand for the League One clash at Kingsmeadow on October 13.

This season Pompey have been handed little more than 700 tickets for the game.

As a result, the club are holding a ballot for members of the Fratton faithful who want to make the short trip up the A3.

There will no doubt be plenty of Pompey supporters left disappointed they can’t support Kenny Jackett’s troops against the Wombles. 

But there is some comfort for the unlucky ones as they will be able to watch the game from the comfort of their own home.

Because of the international break, 3pm kick-offs around the Football League next Saturday can be broadcast live.

That means Pompey will show the game on their website via iFollow for a one-off fee.

Supporters living abroad are able to watch all of the Blues’ games on the EFL streaming platform.

But after being introduced this season, when there is a midweek match or an international break, domestic users can also view Jackett’s side’s games.  

Pompey delivered a 2-0 victory at AFC Wimbledon last season, with Brett Pitman and Conor Chaplin on target.
