Many Portsmouth fans have taken to Twitter to react to their side’s 2-0 home defeat against Sutton United last night in the Papa John’s Trophy.
Danny Cowley once again named a much changed side for this fixture, with the likes of Paul Downing, George Hirst and Louis Thompson coming into the starting eleven.
However their collective efforts eventually came to nothing, with goals from Isaac Olaofe and Louis John earning the visitors the points as they strengthened their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition.
Naturally it didn’t take long for the Fratton Park faithful to react to the result, with many taking to social media to express their views on what they had seen from their side during the defeat on home turf.
