After previous high-profile clashes between both sides it was the turn of Portsmouth to take the trip to Cardiff in the latest Championship game at the Cardiff City Stadium. After previously beating Cardiff in the FA Cup final in 2008 it was middle of table Portsmouth looking to cause an upset to Cardiff’s push to top flight football in the Premiership as they battle for the automatic promotion place (or one of the play off positions!)
Whilst walking through Cardiff City centre it seemed that The Great Western pub was the designated pub for the away fans AND the whole of the South Wales Police force! Chants and singing could be heard echoing around the pub with good spirited fans interacting with the police – whilst other policemen were on duty filming the days proceedings!
