Midfielder Says Pompey Can Still Revive Unlikely Play-off Dream

Most have given up hope, but Jonathan Hogg still believes Pompey can revive their play-off dream if they beat Coventry at Fratton Park on Tuesday night. They're nine points off sixth place with only six to play and will probably need to win all their remaining matches if they're to sneak into the play-offs. But Hogg was looking on the bright side after helping the Blues to a point against ....

Results Still Matter To Pompey, But Perhaps They Matter More To Preston

A glance at the Championship table tells you Pompey's clash with Preston at Fratton Park is more important to North End than the Blues - unless, that is, you go along with the theory that Pompey can still make the play-offs. A home win here and they could be as little as three points off a play-off spot. But it's still a long shot - longer odds, surely, than those which give Preston of avoiding ....

Pompey Play-off Ambitions On The Line At Reading

In the old crazy days when the top three in the second division went up to the first division, anyone below 6th at this stage of things was going through the motions, promotion hopes gone already.

You can argue about the rights and wrongs of that as much as you like, but the ....

Pompey Are Listening, But Will They Go On Listening?

It's a start, but little more. Pompey have extended the period in which fans can renew season tickets at early-bird prices - but they still have a long way to go to quell the anger they have caused with their price hikes and payment restrictions.
