Tribute before Sunday's FA Cup tie

Pompey will pay tribute to current and former members of the armed services before the FA Cup tie against Aldershot on Remembrance Sunday.

Veterans and cadets will be pitchside as the teams exit the tunnel before both captains and Blues chairman Iain McInnes lay a wreath.

Two buglers will play The Last Post, with the crowd then observing a two-minute silence.

Pompey will also play with poppies on their shirts, which will later be donated to help related charitable causes.

Blues boss Andy Awford and club ambassador Alan Knight will earlier attend the annual service of remembrance in Guildhall Square, where they will lay a wreath on behalf of the club.
