FA Cup 3rd Round: Portsmouth vs Gillingham

Last updated : 05 December 2004 By Keith Allman
After last season's cup heroics, reaching the Quarter Final, this season's campaign begins with a match against Gillingham at Fratton Park.

The Gills have had a rotten season so far battling relegation in the Championship, leading to the removal of long standing manager Andy Hessenthaler. Admittedly there's no such thing as an easy draw, but no doubt this is a good chance for us to progress (although we also said the same thing about Leyton Orient).

The match will be played on the weekend of the 8th of January.
