Pompey have been drawn against Southampton in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Blues will face their fierce south-coast rivals for the first time since 2012.

Southampton will travel to Fratton Park the week commencing Monday, September 23.

It was a tie so many of the Fratton faithful craved when the draw was being made.

Many got their wish – including Blues assistant manager Joe Gallen.

Here’s how Pompey fans have reacted to the draw on social media...
