Toast Special - The run in

Toast Special - The run in


Many fans are absolutely confident that Pompey are safe from the unmentionable relegation to non league football others believe that two wins are still needed to make sure.

Well the Toast team decided we should have a detailed look at what is left for the clubs involved in the struggle and try and unravel what is a very complicated situation. It is complicated because so many teams are in the mix - mathematically sixteen teams can still be relegated and Pompey can still make the play-offs!!

Newport County 53 Points

The conclusion

It is so difficult to tell what will happen and who will make the drop as there are so many teams involved. There are also a lot of games between teams in the bottom half and a few local derbies to boot thrown in.

Wycombe have to play the other three sides in the bottom four as well as a trip to play off chasing Fleetwood. Exeter play two top sides in Scunny and Chesterfield and a local derby with neighbours Torquay so they have an 'interesting` time.

There is no doubt though because of the number of teams below playing each other one more win will make Pompey safe. But who do you think will make the drop?

I think we could be safe already with so many sides below us playing each other. However a win over Bristol Rovers on Saturday will seal it. A big crowd expected!!!

On this day in history...26th June

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 26th June.

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
