Administrator grateful for support of Portsmouth fans

Portsmouth's administrator Trevor Birch has thanked the fans who packed out Fratton Park for the goalless draw with Leeds on Saturday to show their support for cash-strapped Pompey. "I want to thank every single one of the Portsmouth fans that came to the Leeds match on Saturday," he told Pompey's official website.

"I've been to enough games over the years as a player, club official and supporter to know that the atmosphere inside the ground was something special.

"This is a special club with special supporters and I'm going to do everything I possibly can to save it.

"I'd been told that the supporters would get back behind the club, but I didn't expect anything like this. It's something of which everyone who was there - fans, staff and players - can be genuinely proud."
