The Football League has confirmed Portsmouth have been docked 10 points after the club went into administration for the second time in two years.

Portsmouth, who face a winding-up application by the taxman next week, applied to go into administration and this was approved by the High Court.

The Football League said in a statement: ''Portsmouth Football Club have been deducted 10 points in accordance with Football League rules and regulations.

''The Football League will now begin dialogue with the administrator aimed at achieving a successful sale of the club and its continuation in league football.''
