A Walsall football fan was left red-faced after booking a hotel to watch his beloved team take on Portsmouth at Fratton Park – on the Isle of Wight.

But the Saddlers supporter was left shocked when he discovered the hotel he booked was, in fact, in Ryde – according to Twitter.

Going by his Twitter username, Davey Drew, thought he’d scooped a bargain by securing a hotel 11 miles from the ground.

His delight soon turned to despair when he released it would mean getting a ferry to and from the Island on Saturday (19) – hugely increasing his overall cost.

His day wasn’t all bad though, as Walsall managed a 1-1 draw with Pompey in League 1.
