Pompey have plenty of preparation ahead of them before making their Championship return

Pompey have been out of action since the end of April, having confirmed their place in next season’s Championship with two fixtures still to go in the League One 2023/24 season.

28 fixtures won and 97 points accumulated in the Blues’ League One-winning season, but John Mousinho and his squad will have their work cut out as they prepare to return to EFL’s second-tier for the first time in 12 years. The Blues head coach and the Fratton Park board be eyeing up who to bring into PO7, and they’ve also secured several pre-season fixtures to get them warmed up.
