Portsmouth points penalty reaffirmed


Portsmouth still face a 10-point deduction should the Pompey Supporters' Trust win its battle to save the club this week.

The Football League confirmed the sanction, to be imposed once the club comes out of administration, after receiving details of the trust's proposed takeover. The bid hinges on the administrators PKF gaining permission to sell Fratton Park, which is controlled by the club's former owner Balram Chainrai, at a High Court hearing starting on Thursday.
