Portsmouth have been forced to make 85 staff redundant as a result of ongoing cost-cutting measures under the administration of UHY Hacker Young.
The administrators' spokeman, Andrew Andronikou, revealed the news today but insisted the club will be able to stave off questions from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs over the validity of the administration process and that he is receiving "enquiries on a daily basis" regarding a takeover.
He also revealed chief executive Peter Storrie has taken a 40% wage cut, but admitted his hands were tied in relation to the club's playing wage bill.
