Stability has been a rare commodity at Fratton Park in recent times, but it looks like Pompey may at least be getting some now in the form of Steve Cotterill’s backroom staff.

The two coaches who remained after Avram Grant left for West Ham and took Paul Groves with him – Ian Woan and Guy Whittingham - have been rewarded with new contracts. Cotterill said he was delighted the pair were being tied to the Blues.

The coaches have signed new deals tying them to Fratton until 2013 and Cotterill said: ‘They’re both good people who have been very supportive to me during the time I’ve been here. I think from any manager’s point of view, you need loyalty.

‘I never knew I would get that when I arrived because they had been given jobs by other managers. But I think through a very difficult period at the football club that they’ve actually enjoyed this season.

‘They’d been through a lot before I got to the club and I think this is a justifiable reward for them. They needed some stability and I’m really pleased for them.’

On loan deadline day, Tom Kilbey has moved to League Two outfit Lincoln City.

Meanwhile Pompey’s last home game of the campaign, against Norwich, has been switched from Saturday, April 30 to Monday, May 2 (7.45pm) to be shown live on Sky.
