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.

14/12/1923: Ron Humpston
14/12/1954: Andy Rollings
14/12/1979: Phil Smith

From the Ed


Happy birthday to Humpston, Andy Rollings and Phil Smith - the Pompey players from the Blues' past born on this day.

Humpston was around long before I was going, as was Rollings - cannot claim to know much about them either.

Do recall Smith from his time with Pompey though, not that he played much. Was very much in and out of the side but did fill in as goalkeeping coach when required so hats off to him - last I heard he was at Aldershot but suspect he has now retired?

Now onto the games previously played.

Played - 15
Won - 6
Drawn - 7
Lost - 2

Remember most of the games from recent years and can claim a couple of games too - the most recent at Fratton Park. However, I cannot recall too much about the defeat against Newport in 2013 or the defeat against Newcastle from 2008 mind. Well, other than the fact we lost.

What are your memories of Humpston, Rollings - possible both too early for anyone - and Smith from their Pompey days? Also have you taken in any of the games previously played today - if so what are the memories from them too?

Rotherham - New York Stadium - 20th January

A point last weekend wasn't bad, even though Pompey held the lead. However, having lost at Bristol Rovers and drawn with Scunthorpe a play off push could do with a Rotherham win.

Nathan Thompson's performance was seen as the best one from a Pompey player against Scunthorpe last Saturday.
