Blackburn in 68, Orient, Plymouth and no Bristol Cities (I think).

Robbins and City games only, apart from the last 10 years I tended to be abroad having seen Pompey mostly give up on their season by this time.

The 3 home games from 1987 to 1996. Nothing to memorable there. Though the home defeat to Plymouth in 1987 was a shock, thankfully it didn't derail our promotion.
