Portsmouth fans say bid is on track

The Pompey Supporters' Trust's bid to buy Portsmouth FC remains on course, despite a further adjournment of the court case which will value Fratton Park.It was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the case, scheduled for January 31, had been put back a further fortnight to February 14.

The new delay is very frustrating for the PST bid team and we share that feeling with many fans I am sure.

However the hearing is not directly PST's affair, but we see it as a move which helps us to get our bid over the line.

Our bid is virtually complete and the additional time will allow the final i's to be dotted and t's to be crossed, before the case is put before a High Court Judge. We remain confident we will take control of the club by early March.

But what next for those who are still owed money by the club?
