Match Facts & Stats
A 5-0 win for Pompey in 2003 as we swept all and sundry away in our promotion season, beside that though Millwall is a barren ground for wins, the last win before that was in 1985, a match played with no Pompey fans if I recall with Kevin O’Callaghan and Nicky Morgan scoring 2 each.
Pompey are the winning habit, will that continue in South London? Plonk a bet here.
