And that means a Fratton Park homecoming for Blues favourite Conor Chaplin.

Pompey were one of the final four balls to be picked out of the hat tonight, with Premier League leaders Liverpool also still there.

But it was the Championship side Kenny Jackett’s men were paired with, who Chaplin joined from Coventry in the summer.
