Pompey attempted to get 10,000 tickets, which Wigan would have accpeted but not the police.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan said: 'I would love to give Portsmouth another 5,000 but there is no chance. We asked Greater Manchester Police if we could do it but they they have said no.
'They say Portsmouth fans have to be in one stand and that's it. They won't budge an inch and we can't do anything but pass on our apologies. I feel sorry for them (the fans). I wish they could come.'
We sit in two stands at Arsenal!
