Pompey deducted nine points
Porthsmouth have been deducted nine points after entering administration last month.
Pompey becomes the first English Premiership team to enter into administration and have points deducted as a result.
The bottom placed side now has ten points and the next team Hull is 14 points away.
With nine matches remaining, Portsmouth will need to win all of them in order to have a chance of surviving another year in the top flight.
The 27 points will leave the team on 37 points but its very unlikely that the team will get all points especially when you look at its season stats as given below:
