Guy Whittingham: Looking forward to the visit of Oxford

Previous campaigns have started with trips to Coventry, Middlesbrough and Plymouth but the visit of Oxford on August 3 will see Pompey begin life in League Two in front of the Fratton Park faithful.

"It's pleasing we are at home for the first match and it is especially pleasing for the fans," he told The News.

"That is something probably a lot of them wanted, the ideal situation with everything which is happening at the moment.

"To start off at Fratton is fantastic for them - and for plenty of the staff as well.

"I don't know what the players look for in the fixtures but for the last two or three years I know we have been away.

"Some of the staff still here look forward to getting a home game first up and now that has happened."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
