Portsmouth 1 Southampton 1, 18/12/2012. Fratton Park, Championship. A samba band dressed in Portsmouth colours entertaining the crowd at Fratton Park stadium before their club take on local rivals Southampton in a Championship fixture. Around 3000 away fans were taken directly to the game in a fleet of buses in a police operation known as the "coach bubble" to avoid the possibility of disorder between rival fans. The match ended in a one-all draw watched by a near capacity crowd of 19,879. Photo by Colin McPherson.
