It means the League One encounter will now have to be rearranged - and a night-time midweek kick-off is almost certain.

Looking at the Bantams' fixture list, it's unlikely the game won't take place for over a month.

Pompey have no remaining midweek fixtures, but it's Bradford's schedule which complicates things.

Realistically, the earliest date the clash could take place is on Tuesday, April 17.

This month, Simon Grayson's side have five more fixtures to negotiate - and three of those are midweek games.

Bradford host title-chasing Wigan on Wednesday, March 14 before travelling to Doncaster the following Monday.

After facing Gillingham on Saturday, March 24, the Bantams then start their Easter fixture list at Blackburn on Thursday, March 29.

They then visit Walsall on Monday, April 2.

Meanwhile, Bradford's fixture against Shrewsbury has been brought forward from Saturday, April 14 to Thursday, April 10 to accomodate the Sky Sports - so it means that week is out of question for Kenny Jackett's side.

Pompey's trip visit to Valley Parade could also take place the week commencing Monday, April 23.
