All you need to know about pre-season clash

Pompey play their penultimate pre-season friendly of the summer when they make the short trip to Bognor this evening (7.15pm kick-off).

The Rocks compete in the Isthmian Premier Division, where they will come up against Havant & Waterlooville in the 2016/17 campaign.

They almost leapfrogged the Hawks in the non-league pyramid, narrowly missing out on automatic promotion before losing to Dulwich Hamlet in the play-offs.

Bognor got their preparations for the new campaign underway with a 3-0 win at Chichester, but were beaten 4-0 by Gosport at the weekend.

The sides also met at Nyewood Lane last summer, with Matt Tubbs netting for the Blues in a 1-1 draw.

It was a more convincing display one year later, as Ryan Taylor, Miles Storey, Danny Hollands, Bradley Tarbuck, Andy Barcham and Jed Wallace all found the target in a 6-1 rout.

Pompey PlayerHD subscribers can listen to live online commentary from Nyewood Lane from 6.30pm this evening.

We’ll also have match updates on Twitter and the Pompey Wall.

There will be post-match reaction on the website, Pompey PlayerHD and our official YouTube channel, with highlights to follow on Thursday.

Tickets can be bought at the ground tonight, priced £10 for adults and £3 for juniors (under 18).
