The Blues’ game against Charlton was called off one hour before kick-off because of a waterlogged pitch.

But before the team coach had begun it’s journey back to Fratton Park, a new date was quickly arranged – Tuesday night (7pm).

Here’s how some of the Pompey supporters reacted on Twitter to another day of Blues drama...

@gregb100: Barking mad decision to leave it so late. A proper dogs dinner. Beastly weather.

@dazza_nics: Apart from the Hull result (today), all the others have gone our way to be honest.. we should have our games called off more often.

@adarkelimited: Can honestly say I never felt unsafe on a wet boggy pitch. Frozen pitch yes.

@mshainesy: It’s been pouring down for 3 days and expected to carry on until Tuesday night.

The pitch at The Valley

First game called off at The Valley since 2014 and Tues could well be the 2nd one.

@med584: It’s going to rain for next few days. How are they going to guarantee it will be ok for Tuesday?

@BenTarling5: Sad times. Another trip on a Tuesday night through no fault of our own.

@furniss_alex: Sort it out, this league and it’s pitches. It’s been covered for a week and still in shambles. “Frozen” at Accrington, something fishy going on here @EFL and @Pompey.

@BlueArmyAlex: These fixtures are gonna add up in the long run, if we lose on Tuesday we’ll implode harder than 18/19.

@FcHolybourne: Gives Charlton 3 more days to get some players back from injury.
