It is the first time Pompey and Southampton have met since a 2-2 draw at St Mary’s in April 2012 in the Championship, when David Norris famously rescued a point with a strike late in injury time. 

The third round cup tie will be the first south coast derby to take place at Fratton Park since December 2011. 

If you were unable to get a ticket for the match before it sold out, don’t fear as it has been selected for televised coverage.
