Portsmouth's preparations for their UEFA Cup clash at Wolfsburg has suffered a series of setbacks.

The Daily Mail says Flightline, the airline taking them to play Wolfsburg, went bust.

A replacement plane was flown by Thomson to Southampton Airport to take Tony Adams' team to Braunschweig, Germany.

They also spent the night at a Holiday Inn because the cash-strapped club were not willing to fork out for their usual five-star accommodation.
