Ryan Williams' expected comeback scrapped after latest Portsmouth fixture cancellation
Pompey have suffered yet another fixture cancellation.
The Blues were scheduled to head to Doncaster on Tuesday evening (September 10) for a Premier League Cup encounter.
A competition which effectively serves under-23 teams, it was set to provide the stage for the comebacks of Ryan Williams and Oli Hawkins.
Kenny Jackett had also pencilled in involvement for left-back James Meredith, as he continues to trial with the club.
However, following Leicester’s withdrawal from the competition, the Blues’ qualifying-round fixture has been scrapped.
It means both Pompey and Doncaster have been placed directly in Group D of the competition.
They will be joined by Aston Villa – and the winners of the match involving Cambridge United and Exeter.
The group stages involve clubs meeting on a home and away basis.
Pompey reached the semi-finals of the Premier League Cup in May 2017, when they lost 3-0 at Swansea.
Meanwhile, Pompey reserves will face the Hawks on Wednesday, September 18, at Westleigh Park in the second round of the Hampshire Senior Cup.
