From the Ed


Another birthday free day - two in a row - so it'll be onto the games previously played.

Played - 21
Won - 9
Drawn - 4
Lost - 8

With 9 wins to 8 defeats - the other 4 were drawn - Pompey's victories to losses ratio is in our favour from the 21 played.

I wasn't at the disappointing defeat at York last year but do remember it, too well sadly. The game I can claim was the 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in 2014 at Fratton Park, when we sent them into non-league I think?

What are your memories of McIlwraith from his Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

1965 Norwich saw Jimmy Dickinson play his last ever game at Fratton Park. I remember it was a very emotional day and the 4-0 win eventually helped Pompey escape relegation.

There for the games in 86, went to Plough Lane for a midweek bruising game with Wimbledon in 88. Top flight game with Liverpool in 2005 & a desperate battle to stay up in the bottom tier in 2014.
