But before supporters get too excited, it's not the arrival of a new striker who'll fire Kenny Jackett's side to the League One title.

Unfortunately, it's the discovery of a danger of a different kind that will have the club's groundsman feeling nervous.

Fratton Park has always had problems with foxes.

As Pompey prepare to play host to Wycombe on Saturday, the ground staff at Fratton Park arrived at work on Thursday to discover some interesting chunks had been taken out of the playing surface.

That will leave the groundsman '˜holed up' all day in a race against time to repair the damage ahead of the visit of the Chairboys.

And he'll have to come up with a cunning plan so that he's not outfoxed in the future!
