Ritchie Joins Robins

Matt Ritchie has been loaned to Swindon Town for a month.

The 19-year-old hasn't started a Championship game since the opening home game of the season against Reading and so has dropped down a league to gain some experience with Danny Wilson's side.

Of course, there is no way Pompey would allow Ritchie to go out on loan without a replacement lined up, so expect another player to arrive at Fratton Park during the international break.
