Another Barnsley and Huddersfield day - like yesterday! A famous day back in 1950 Villa are beaten and Pompey are the Leahue Champions (again) on goal average!! Happy days eh? Before I was born too.

Yes, something about Barnsley, who would have been relegated this season if we hadn't lost our points. Anyway, the home wins over Carlisle in 1985 & the dykes in 2001.

Pompey aim remains the same

Doncaster, Carlisle & Plymouth are the teams to catch. Pompey are further adrift than we would want but the aim to finish top 3 remains the same. That's targeted in the coming weeks.
