It'll be weird not playing West Ham on Boxing Day again this year, although that could be fixed this time next year.

Twelve games for me there (I think). Memories of 83 when Charlton debutant keeper Tony Lange had an absolute nightmare - the Fratton End struck up 'thank you very much for the three points Tony!'

Far too many for me, but the Plymouth away game sticks in 1986. Lunch time ko, very early coach from FP. Great 3-2 win.

Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.

Video - Pompey 2-1 Newport

With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
