In this month’s edition of Sports Chat, host Dave Bowers is joined, once again, by Shine Radio’s sports editor, James Robbins, and ‘Victorian Dad’, comedian Alistair Barrie.

Alistair revels in Southampton’s brief flirtation with the top of the Premier League, while the two Pompey fans console themselves with a narrow FA Cup first-round success. The guys also discuss rugby union – well two of them do – and the US election. As always, there are also plenty of laughs.
