It's a 4.30 am start this Saturday for one of our biggest away days in years. When we played Oxford in the play off final in 2010, I came down the day before . Walking around the west end at lunch time the place was rammed with Pompey fans ahead of their FA Cup final with Chelsea that afternoon. If some one would have said that we would be playing each other in the league in 2013/14 you would at the time though they were crackers. Portsmouth have had it rough for a few years and all York fans can sympathise as we have both been ruined by owners who were only interested in what they could take out of the club.
Let's hope we get as warm a welcome as Cliffe Minstermens Ash gave when meeting this Portsmouth terrace legend.
