Seventeen games with only Wolves appearing twice. The thrashing of Leicester in front of the SKY TV cameras last season stands out; some famous goal scorers there including Ike Clarke, Ron Saunders, Dave Kemp and Mick Quinn. There is also the winner over Everton in 1955 scored by Vital Pompey friend Pat Neil.

Overall the record stands played 17 won 8 drawn 4 lost 5 goals for 25 against 16 - all in all not a bad day in fact apart from the Millwall defeat in 1966 there is a spell of 1938 to 1994 without a loss.

Another feature, again courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, sees us look at those Pompey personalities - past or present - who have a birthday on this day...

24/9/1980: Petri Pasanen
24/9/1974: Mathias Svensson
24/9/1957: Steve Foster

In defence of Smith

Lowe is aiming high

Having marked his Pompey debut with a goal - within 10 minutes for the reserves against Exeter - Jamal Lowe was on the bench to face Leyton Orient and came on at half time.

Riley Explains Postponements

It doesn't happen often in the Premier League or Championship thesedays, but League's 1 & 2 still suffer the odd postponement owing to the weather and Mike Riley...

Finest in the Football League

I don't hide how highly I rate Chaplin. I feel he's the best striker in league two - better than most in league one. Cook said he is the best goalscorer outside the Premier League.
