History of the Portsmouth v Charlton Athletic fixture

Portsmouth are ready to welcome Charlton Athletic to Fratton Park on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Pompey are clearly on top, having won 24 and lost only 10 of the 44 games.

The previous match played between the two at Fratton Park was more than three years back, in October 1999, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a League Division One match.
