Pompey v Cardiff - latest ticket info
It would appear that 'rumours' of a large number of Cardiff fans, without tickets, travelling to Fratton this weekend has seen the club take measures to prevent them from sitting in the Pompey end.
The away allocation has sold out, yet plenty more are 'expected' to travel and could have got tickets, although being on the club database before August 14th is something that you need in order to get tickets.

Cardiff Ticket Information
Fans wishing to purchase tickets for Pompey's npower Championship match against Cardiff at Fratton Park on Saturday must have been registered on the club's database prior to August 14.
This decision has been taken on police advice following reports that Cardiff fans are looking to buy seats in areas reserved for Pompey supporters after selling out their own allocation of tickets. There is currently high demand among Bluebirds fans for seats following the signing of Craig Bellamy last week.
Fans will not be able to register a new account at Ticketmaster, online or over the phone, until after this weekend's game. This service will be re-activated from 5pm on Saturday, August 28 for supporters purchasing tickets for other matches.
The club would also like to strongly advise Pompey fans who intend purchasing or collecting their tickets for the Cardiff game at the ticket office in Rodney Road to arrive at least two hours before kick-off.
If you arrive later there is the likelihood that you will experience long queues and delays that may mean you miss the start of the game.
Kick-off will not be delayed for late-coming supporters.
