Portsmouth must return to the High Court tomorrow after Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs challenged their voluntary administration.

Andrew Andronikou, the administrator in charge of the stricken Barclays Premier League club, was informed of the latest development today.

Despite uncertainty over the nature of HMRC's objection, Andronikou is confident Portsmouth will continue down the route of administration as planned.

"We're having to go to court to show that the debenture is valid," he told Press Association Sport.

"I don't understand the exact reason why this is, we're just following normal protocol. We're not unduly worried.

"It's not standard procedure but I'd imagine that HMRC are basically crossing their Is and dotting their Ts.

"We're expecting the administration to proceed as it was."
