Portsmouth’s recent resurgence came to a shuddering halt on Saturday afternoon, as they were thrashed 4-1 by Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium.
Things had actually started positively for Pompey in Lancashire, with Ronan Curtis putting the visitors ahead after 35 minutes.
But after an Ellis Harrison own goal levelled the scores on the stroke of half time, Stanley ran riot in the second half, with Dion Charles putting John Coleman’s side ahead, before a double from Colby Bishop sealed an emphatic three points for the hosts.
That result brings an end to Pompey’s run of ten games unbeaten in all competitions, and leaves them tenth in the League One table, three points adrift of the play-off places.
Taking to Twitter to react to that defeat, plenty of Portsmouth fans were furious with their side’s performance, with a number renewing their calls for the sacking of manager Kenny Jackett.
Here, we take a look at what of some of those Pompey supporters had to say.
Leave Kenny there

Can’t give excuses about injury’s we had a defender on the bench while a midfielder is playing defence makes sense NO. Need to question the recruitment team as I don’t believe this squad is anywhere near the action plan KJ planned as it stands my opinion we are a mid table team
