Cash-strapped Portsmouth have been forced to make "a number of redundancies" to help aid their battle for financial survival.

The identities of those made redundant has not been divulged, with no-one at the npower Championship club available to comment on speculation chief executive David Lampitt is one of those affected.

Pompey's players and staff have not been paid since December and the cost-cutting measures also involve this continuing for some at the club, most likely high earners, on an "ongoing basis", while a host of full-time staff are also being asked to go part-time.
