The Spitfires had already been forced to cancel a fixture against AFC Wimbledon last weekend after their pitch was recently relaid.

Now the visit of Pompey has also fallen victim - but the Rocks have swiftly stepped in.

The Rocks had earlier this summer pulled out of a scheduled match with the League One side after the game was downgraded to a Pompey XI fixture.

Now the Blues will travel to Nyewood Lane on Saturday (1.30pm) - with a full team.
