Bristol Rovers Academy Under-18 side play Portsmouth in the FA Youth Cup Second Round.
The fixture is scheduled for the Memorial Stadium on Tuesday 17th November 2015.
This match against the “Mikey Harris Boys” is due to begin at 7pm.
The two sides last met on the opening day of the season, Saturday August 8th 2015.
On that day it was 1-1 with the Pompey equaliser arriving very late into added time.
Pompey are currently fourth in the Youth Alliance South West League with 16 points from 11 games.
Bristol Rovers are fifth with the same points total but an inferior goal difference.
Both teams have lost their last three league fixtures so a competitive match is possible.
However, if the Pompey youth side repeat their first round form it may be a tricky encounter.
In the first round Portsmouth beat league leaders Plymouth Argyle 3-0.
