The administrators of Portsmouth Football Club, PKF, have responded to the news from the High Court that the case to determine the future of the team will take place by 19 April at the latest.
The club has been in administration since February 2012. A collective of fans and supporters The Pompey Supporters' Trust are hoping to buy the club. The court case hinges on the ownership of the side's Fratton Park ground.
“We are pressing ahead with the case that is seeking the court’s consent for the disposal of Fratton Park to the PST (Pompey Supporters Trust).
"The court has this morning confirmed that the case will be heard by 19 April at the latest, which will enable us to meet the Football League's deadline for the sale of the club, subject to a favourable ruling. We hope that, in the next few days, the court will be able to set a specific date for this hearing.
"The court was also made aware that correspondence has been exchanged between the Football League and Portpin which seems to lead to some ambiguity with the League's previous public statements that no other bid would be considered at this late stage. We will be seeking clarification from the League as a matter of urgency."
