George Cooper scored twice for Posh against Oxford.

Pompey are one of the best-supported clubs in the division and have already sold over 2,000 tickets for Saturday’s match. The away fans have been allocated the entire Motorpoint Stand. They currently have an allocation of 3,600 tickets for a game that became an all-ticket match yesterday (September 10).

It’s sure to be a terrific atmosphere as table-topping Posh take on second-placed Pompey in a clash between two unbeaten teams. Posh are currently two points clear at the top.

“Portsmouth have a fantastic fanbase,” Evans said. “They pack out Fratton Park every week and they travel in huge numbers.
