Battle of the Ports

FA Cup round 4 draw:

Pompey v Guz*
Saturday 26 January

A Naval tie for the 4th round recreated the Battle of the Ports between Portsmouth and Plymouth. The bitter rivalry between the dockyards used to transfer onto the football pitch until the clubs went their separate ways; it threatens to be an exciting draw.

Let the games begin!

*that's Portsmouth v Plymouth Argyle

Do investigate how Soton and Portsmouth regard each other. I am sure there are some lovely insults you could use ("Dirty Eastern Bastards" doesn't work, does it?)
