Just checked on the likihood of todays game and the club have issued this statement on the official site.


Referee Mike Dean will inspect the Fratton Park pitch this morning to see if today`s Premier League match against Manchester City can go ahead.


Temperatures last night dipped to below -7 degrees centigrade and have been well below freezing every night this week.


Earlier this week a dozen diesel heaters were hired to blow hot air on the pitch as ground staff did everything possible to ensure the game went ahead.



It doesn’t mention what time the inspection will be but I’d check first before travelling.

Hopefully all will be ok – As soon as we know Vital Pompey will update you via the comments on this article.

Update @ 10:30 – Quay radio have confirmed today’s game will no longer go ahead !
