Pompey will be accompanied by nearly 4,000 fans for their key game at promotion rivals Peterborough next month.

The latest batch went on sale at 10am on Wednesday morning, after Pompey’s initial lot of 2,300 were consumed by the ever-loyal Fratton faithful. But less than 24 hours later, the club have already confirmed the additional allocation - for blocks A and B of Posh's main stand - is now sold out, too, meaning 3,900 Blues followers will be at the Weston Homes Stadium to cheer on John Mousinho’s title-contenders.

That’s set to be a new record on the road this term, with last Saturday’s away attendance at Charlton - 3,155 - surpassing the 2,927 who took in Pompey’s 1-1 draw with Derby at Pride Park back in September.

With the Blues seven points clear at the top of the League One standings and arrowing in on a return to the Championship, it’s understandable that fans want to do their bit in getting Mousinho’s side across the line as soon as possible.

That has seen a battle for tickets among the Fratton faithful, with Pompey’s next away day - against Blackpool on Saturday, March 9 - an away-end sell-out. Meanwhile, tickets in the home end for the Blues’ last four home games against Barnsley, Derby, Shrewsbury and Wigan respectively are already a sell-out.

The club are yet reveal ticket details for remaining away games at Wycombe, Bolton and Lincoln, with the match at the Imps Pompey’s last fixture of the season.
