Last Time Out at London Road
The last time Portsmouth played at London Road was eighteen years ago when both teams battled their way to a 2-2 draw.
John McGlashan opened the scoring in the first-half for Posh before John McLaughlin and Paul Walsh, with a classy chip, turned the game round in Pompey`s favour. Pompey led 2-1 at half time but a Tony Adcock goal level things out.
