Yeovil Town's match at Portsmouth this afternoon will go ahead after Fratton Park passed a morning pitch inspection.

Heavy rain had put the match in doubt, but referee Fred Graham was happy to give the go-ahead when he checked the playing surface at 8am this morning.

“Obviously the pitch has been affected by the recent heavy rain, but there’s no standing water and the surface isn’t dangerous," he told Portsmouth's official website.

“I’ll take another look at the pitch at midday, but we always do that as standard.”
