Deslandes reassured Pompey chance will come

Hayling United and Fleetlands face a rearranged Portsmouth Senior Cup clash after the College Ground failed a pitch inspection yesterday.

Despite overnight rain on Monday, several areas of the pitch remained frozen, prompting last night's game to be postponed.

'It was to be expected because of the weather,' said Hayling boss Lee Paul.

'Although I'm disappointed, another postponement at least gives several of my senior players more time to get over their injuries.

'Our survival in the Wessex premier division is very important and our focus as a club is to build on our current position and finish in mid-table.'
