Portsmouth administrator Trevor Birch is keen to set up a meeting with the Pompey Supporters' Trust and Balram Chainrai's company Portpin to try and help save the financially-stricken club's future.

The news comes after Wednesday morning's announcement from Portpin that they have withdrawn their bid for the troubled npower League One club. Chainrai listed a number of reasons behind his decision to pull out but went on to state "we welcome and will assist anyone, including the Supporters' Trust, to try and save the club in the coming days".

The announcement leaves Pompey in real danger of liquidation, but administrator Birch hopes the Supporters' Trust can still come to their rescue. He said: "We note Portpin's statement that it has withdrawn its bid for Portsmouth Football Club."
