I was there & I think, dangerous, in 1979 this game was on MOTD, rarely was a Div 4 game on the box, but Pompey were a big fish in naff pond. So a few Derek Showers defensive balls up & we get very embarrassed by Grimsby on tv. Also there for Swindon in 1990.

Same two games at Matt. Barry Davies was the MOTD commentator!
