Trotters come to Fratton Park for pre-season.

Championship side Bolton Wanderers will come to Fratton Park for a pre-season friendly match to be played on Saturday, August 4th.

It is hardly the prestigous home friendly many Pompey fans would have been hoping for but beggars can't be choosers, I suppose. Ticket details will be announced closer to the match.

The season officially begins for Portsmouth with a Carling Cup first round tie on Tuesday, August 14th with the first league game coming on the following Saturday, August 18th.

This is how Pompey's pre-season campaign looks:

Havant & Waterlooville (A) - Saturday, July 14th (3pm)

Gilbraltar (A) - Friday, July 20th (8pm)

Another game in Gibraltar may possibly be played with the team still abroad.

Bolton (H) - Saturday, August 4th (3pm)

AFC Wimbledon (A) - Wednesday, August 8th (7:45pm)
