Flashback: Portsmouth win League Two title - Transfer Flashbacks

On the 6th May 2017, Portsmouth were crowned champions of League Two on the final day of the season.

After sealing promotion to League One nearly a month prior to the final game, Pompey had an outside chance of sealing the title if league leaders Plymouth slipped up and Doncaster Rovers also failed to win.

Portsmouth had not been top of the table at any point in the season, but heading into their season finale against Cheltenham Town, the south coast team put on a display of champions by thrashing the Robins 6-1 in front of a sold out Fratton Park.

Portsmouth currently sit four points away from the automatic promotion spot in the table with a game in hand over second place Barnsley, and if they can claim nine points from nine in their final games of, Pompey will book their place into the Championship for next season if they can pull it off.

As well as holding promotion to the Championship in their hands, Portsmouth secured their first piece of cup silverware since their famous 2008 FA Cup win in the form of the EFL Trophy, where a penalty shoot-out handed Pompey the trophy at a near-max capacity Wembley Stadium.

Portsmouth have gone from strength to strength since their League Two title win, and the club stand on the verge of topping their title win with another surprise outcome of their own.
