Pompey fans are planning to pay tribute to Mick Kennedy on Saturday.

And there's to be a minute's applause for the Blues hero before Saturday's game at Fratton Park.

That's after seeking assurances from Kennedy's family over how they'd like fans to pay their respects.

Supporters are determined to make it a fitting occasion to honour Kennedy's memory, following his death at the age of 57 on February 9.
