Morecambe will bring a lot more than just four fans to Portsmouth, says a die-hard Shrimp.
Only four tickets had been sold to away supporters for tomorrow’s game at Fratton Park, according to reports.
But devoted Morecambe fan Geoff Wilson said this doesn’t tell the whole story.
“People will pay on the gate,” said Geoff, who will be making the 290-mile trip to the League 2 clash with the 2008 FA Cup winners.
“I’ll be on one of two minibuses, which are full, then there will be some Morecambe ‘exiles’ who live down south.
“However many are there, we’ll still make noise and Portsmouth will be surprised.
“It’s hard to predict, because it’s the first time we’ve been down there, how many will go. There were 60 came to Wycombe and I think there will be more than that.”
The Portsmouth News reported that home ticket sales for Morecambe’s visit were 12,433, including 10,602 season ticket holders.
Last season Morecambe’s average gate at the Globe Arena was 1,954, with 2,545 attending the recent Capital One Cup clash with Wolves.
