That means Pompey will play 22 home league matches this season – one fewer than the 23 scheduled at the start of the season.

Catlin revealed proposals were put forward – and accepted – at a recent Tony Goodall Fans’ Conference on the matter.

And the club will advertise what they are to propose to season-ticket holders for the scrapped Bury clash in due course.

Speaking in his latest Pompey Q&A, Catlin said: ‘As supporters know, it was the last game of the season.

‘We have looked at a number of options, we discussed them last week at the Tony Goodall Fans Conference.

‘We put some proposals, they were accepted, I believe they're out there on the minutes.

‘Behind the scenes, before we go public, that's why I don't want to say it at the moment.

‘We need to look at what is achievable in regards to operationally to what we suggest.

‘That was voted on unanimously by the TGFC.

‘Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we'll be out there and advertise what we're proposing.’
