No op for Dickinson? Not yet anyway

In actual fact he spent most of his time charging up and down the touchline warming up with it looking likely that he would come on.

Having consulted the Stoke surgeon it has been agreed that NO surgery will take place at the moment, although, as Cotterill told The Pompey Site, it 'could' before the season is out: 'Carl has been to see Stoke's surgeon. We think at some stage there may be something that needs to be done.
