Last season, Pompey beat non-league Harrow Borough in the first round at Fratton Park – Cowley’s first FA Cup game in charge of the Blues.

However, they failed to progress past round two following a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Harrogate.

If Pompey progress beyond round one this season they earn £41,000 in prize money and be in the hat for round two, which takes place on Saturday, November 26.
