    Does the Chairman back him with funds to strengthen a depleted squad in the next transfer window, or does his public vote of confidence not stretch that far?? We will see.
    Meanwhile, onwards an upwards to Wrexham, if somehow despite the horrendous injuries we can get through there's the possibility of a lucrative 3rd round tie, fingers crossed."

Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager

Oxford Mail: Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager Portsmouth set to choose Richie Barker as new manager

Portsmouth are expected to announce Richie Barker as their new manager.

The ex-Crawley boss is understood to be the south coast club's preferred choice to take over as boss according to sources.

It means that Chris Wilder will remain as Oxford United manager after he was interviewed for the position this week.

Pompey's seven-man board voted late last night on their No 1 candidate and it is believed Barker will be unveiled shortly, with Steve Coppell joining in a director of football role.
