I'd Love To Put A Pompey Shirt On By End Of The Season

Danny Webber hopes to follow in Hermann Hreidarsson's footsteps and play competitively for Pompey before the end of the season. The pair both suffered serious injuries on the same day at Spurs last season and now that the Icelandic defender is back in the frame, former Sheffield United and Watford striker Webber is keen for a similar comeback. Webber won't put a date on when he hopes to be in ....

Pressure Grows On Pompey Over Season-ticket Storm

Pompey are under pressure to rethink their season-ticket price increase - or at least some of the conditions attached it. Scores of fans have been critical of the club for the increases themselves and for the short period they are giving people to pay up to take advantage of cheaper prices, and the limits on payment options. Now one supporters' group is to meet David Lampitt to ask for a review ....

Pompey Defender's Delight At Overdue 'throw-in Goal'

Greg Halford set up a winning goal for Pompey with one his long throw-ins – then admitted: It’s about time. There was plenty of talk about the on-loan Wolves defender’s Stoke-style missiles into the box when he arrived at Fratton, but they haven’t caused too many goals or near misses – until now. And now Halford hopes the victory at Leicester can spur the Blues on ....

Cotterill Weighs Up Pompey Targets - Including Geographical Ones

The 2011-12 season may be some way off, but Pompey boss Steve Cotterill is already planning for it.

Boss Cotterill Makes Plea To One Of Pompey's Championship Rivals

Steve Cotterill is hoping Swansea will see the benefit of allowing his namesake David to stay at Fratton Park. The Welsh winger is unlikely to feature much in the Swans first team and Pompey reckon it suits everyone for him to be allowed to spend another month at Fratton. It would increase competition for places across the midfield as Liam Lawrence returns to full ....

Defender's Verdict On Pompey's Fading Play-off Hopes

Ricardo Rocha is taking a ‘you never know’ view as the debate rages over whether Pompey can still push for the play-offs. The Portuguese defender has been a key member of a team which has secured seven clean sheets in eight. He was frustrated the Blues could not turn possession into a win against Boro on Saturday, and has also been reflecting on a year at Fratton which has never been ....

What Pompey Need To Do To Make The Play-offs

Liam Lawrence reckons a win at Leicester next weekend can reignite Pompey's play-off push - but he admits they probably need to win all their remaining nine games to make a top-six finish. The Irishman had mixed feelings after making his comeback from injury in the 0-0 Fratton Park draw with Middlesbrough. He was delighted to be back - but gutted the Blues hadn't managed the win their ambitions ....

Boro Are The New Pompey - And That Makes Them Dangerous

Steve Cotterill has warned that Pompey’s next opponents, Middlesbrough, are fighting to get away from the Championship danger zone just like the Blues have done in recent weeks. The Pompey boss is wary of the threat Tony Mowbray’s team will bring to Fratton Park as they bid to pull away from danger. They beat Derby at the Riverside in midweek and have picked up useful points in ....

I'm Loving My New Pompey Role

Joel Ward has thanked his team-mates for helping him take to his new midfield role like a duck to water. The converted defender’s displays in a new floating role have put him among the fronteunners for the player-of-the-season prizes. The Emsworth lad’s form has been a key ingredient of Pompey’s recent winning run and he shone again as the sequence came to an end at Bristol ....

Clash Of Form Teams Will Be A Tough Test For Pompey

  It’s hard to preview a Pompey game and concentrate on that game at the moment. Games aren’t games on their own merits any more – for the time being, they are part of the bigger picture. In the case of Pompey’s trip to Bristol City, it’s all about whether they can gain a seventh straight win and clean sheet. This 100 per cent run ....

The Unlikely Heroes Who Are The Toast Of Pompey

  Steve Cotterill has paid tribute to two of the unlikely heroes of Pompey’s recent winning run. He praised Hermann Heidarsson and Jamie Ashdown for their part in the win over Sheffield United and the victories that have preceded it. Last summer, you would have been foolish to think either player had much part to play in this campaign. Ashdown was released by ....

One Of Those Nights For Pompey? Not In The Way Kitson Feared

Dave Kitson says he feared it was going to be one of those nights when he missed a chance against Scunthorpe - only to end his Fratton end drought a few minutes and spark a win he says Pompey must still look to build on in the coming games. Kitson, who got the first in the 2-0 win over The Iron, says the up and down nature of the Blues' season so far means they can take nothing for granted about ....

Pompey Head For Mid-table Tussle That's Not About Mid-table Mediocrity

Pompey lose a few games and everyone’s predicting relegation. They then win a handful and it’s play-offs this, play-offs that. Is it like this at all clubs? Probably. The Championship table might be tightly-packed but the chances are Pompey are not going up nor down when the season ends on May 7. And the same is probably true of Ipswich, whose good recent run has carried them well ....

There will have been plenty of people watching the Sky Sports News special report on Pompey’s plight who learned something new – but most Blues fans will not have been among them.

Iceman Aids Pompey's Climb - But Says It Has To Continue

It’s no surprise that Pompey’s improved form has coincided with Hermann Hreidarsson’s return to the starting line-up.

This Time Pompey Could Do With A Hat-trick For Something

Hard to believe it’s nine years since Barnsley last visited Fratton Park. That was the day Robert Prosinecki scored a ‘hat-trick for nothing’ as Linvoy Primus was somehow sent off for punching an opponent (!) and the Tykes hit back from 4-2 down to draw 4-4. Pompey must hope they defend better in this game than they did that day as they bid to make Fratton a fortress again, or ....

Pompey Boss Demands Side Put Oakwell Nightmare Behind Them

Steve Cotterill is demanding Barnsley's visit to Fratton Park is when Pompey must show they are better than their performance at Oakwell in November suggested.

He's also backing Dave Kitson to go on a scoring run after ....
