Chris Neville is to become the latest member of Pompey’s backroom staff to join Blackburn.

The long-serving strength and conditioning coach will tomorrow seal a reunion with former boss Michael Appleton at Ewood Park.

He joins Luke Dowling and John Keeley in quitting Fratton Park this week for the Championship club.

On Tuesday, all Pompey staff were informed by administrators PKF there would be a new round of 10-per-cent pay cuts as they seek to further slash costs.

Since then caretaker boss Guy Whittingham has lost three of his prized backroom members.
