The extent of Portsmouth's financial difficulties were underlined on Thursday when the club's official website was temporarily shut down.

Pompey's perilous financial position has resulted in their failure to maintain payments to Juicy, the company responsible for running Supporters attempting to access the site were greeted with the message "Website Unavailable".

However, Juicy later released a statement confirming a new payment plan had been agreed with the south-coast club.

The statement read: "Juicy has been in continual communication with the finance team in recent months about managing the costs of the website but were forced, due to payment plan breaches, to take the site down earlier on Thursday.

"A new payment plan with the club has now been agreed and the site will be made live with immediate effect."

Juicy director Pete Holliday said: "We understand how passionate fans are about Portsmouth and want to see the site live just as much as they do.

"We even had a supporter contact us today to offer to pay to get the site live again.

"We're proud of the work we have done with Portsmouth, and are pleased to be working through these issues with the club so that the site can remain live and continue to serve the needs of the club and its community."
