Portsmouth set for 7 April

West Ham United can confirm that the home match against Portsmouth has been switched to an 8pm kick-off on Monday 7 April - subject to the visitors' involvement in the FA Cup.

Should Harry Redknapp's side win through to the FA Cup semi-finals, which are scheduled for Saturday 5 April, the match will have to be rearranged again. Portsmouth are due to play their sixth-round tie away to Manchester United on Saturday 8 March. As informed earlier this month, the original Portsmouth fixture at the Boleyn Ground could not take place as scheduled at 3pm on Saturday 5 April because of London Underground engineering works. However, the club was not in a position to confirm date of fixture until approval was given by the Premier League and selection of fixtures for broadcast reasons.

Subject to the match going ahead as planned, the 7 April game will be televised live on Setanta Sports - as was the previous meetings between the two clubs on 27 October which finished goalless. With a game in hand on Portsmouth, West Ham United, in tenth position, are just four points behind seventh-placed rivals.
