International Ex-premier League Winger On Way To Fratton

Winger David Cotterill is set to arrive at Fratton Park - effectively as John Utaka's replacement - on loan from Swansea. The Wales international will fill a void created when Pompey sold Utaka and then failed in bids to replace him with another attacker at the end of the transfer window. Cotterill has fallen out of favour at the Liberty Stadium and has not played for six ....

Rocha Hails New-look Defence - Will Cotterill Keep Them Together?

Has Steve Cotterill finally found the right defensive blend? It’s a bit early to say that after one clean sheet – their first in 11 games – but Ricardo Rocha was certainly impressed by the way the new-look back four performed at Doncaster. Many Pompey fans feel Rocha is the key man to have at the heart of defence and it looks like Aaron Mokoena and Ibrahima Sonko may face a ....

Just When You Thought Pompey Had Had All The Complications They Could...

Pompey 1 Derby 1: Nugent Gives A Lift On Day When Football Matched The Weather

Pompey ended up grateful for a point on a day when they'd set out really needing three - after David Nugent saved them from another defeat with a superb 90th-minute equaliser.

It looked like another tale of Pompey woe - until Nugent ....

Pompey Go Back To The Future - While Defender May Go Back To His Club

Pompey are going back to the future as they seek to inject new life into their much-criticised youth set-up.
