Pompey Date Confirmed




Newcastle will Portsmouth at home in the third round of the Carling Cup on Wednesday October 25th.

That, of course, means the return to Tyneside of ex-Newcastle striker Lomana Lua Lua.

Lua Lua was signed from Colchester United in 2000 by Sir Bobby Robson, and was a great favourite of the crowd. He always seemed to be more effective coming off the bench as substitute, rather than starting the match, very much like Temri Ketsbia.

But relations between Lua Lua and fans soured when he went on loan to Portsmouth and scored a late goal against Robson's side. Not so much the goal, but the way he celebrated.

THIRD ROUND DRAW

Wycombe v Doncaster
Sheffield United v Birmingham
Leicester v Aston Villa
Watford v Hull
Leeds v Southend
Chesterfield v West Ham
Notts County v Southampton
Newcastle v Portsmouth
Charlton v Bolton
Liverpool v Reading
West Brom v Arsenal
Port Vale v Norwich
Everton v Luton
MK Dons v Tottenham
Crewe v Manchester United
