Portsmouth v Southampton

About this programme

Portsmouth v Southampton (Kick-off 1.00pm). Jake Humphrey presents coverage of this afternoon's Championship clash at Fratton Park, where the south-coast rivals meet for only the second time in six years. The most recent meeting took place in the FA Cup in February 2010 when the Saints were in League One and Pompey were in the Premier League. In the two years that have passed, both clubs find themselves in the second-tier of English football, and it is Nigel Adkins' men who appear destined to reach the promised land come the end of the campaign and achieve a second successive promotion. Portsmouth have endured another tumultuous season thus far, which has seen manager Steve Cotterill depart for Nottingham Forest and be replaced by Michael Appleton in his first managerial role.
