Friday evening update: Administrators trying to save Portsmouth FC say significant progress has been made over past two weeks. Talks involving Portpin, the Pompey Supporters' Trust, the Football League and the PFA are continuing. More time is being given to interested parties to conclude a sale.
The fans hoping to buy Portsmouth Football Club say they'll hand their completed bid to administrators later today.
The Pompey Supporters' Trust was set a deadline of today by administrator Trevor Birch - and their's is thought to be one of two bids on the table.
The other has been made by Portpin, the company belonging to former owner Balram Chainrai.
Mr Birch - brought into Fratton Park when the club entered administration earlier this year - will now have to decide which bid offers the best deal to creditors of the League One side.
The Trust is offering to buy Fratton Park for £2.65 million, but because Mr Chainrai has a charge of more than £17 million over it - the parties will have to reach a compromise.
