It was another frustrating day for Portsmouth on Saturday, as they were held to a goalless draw by Gillingham at Fratton Park.
In what was seemingly a game of few chances, neither side were able to break the deadlock across the course of the 90 minutes, forcing both to settle for the point.
That result is the latest in what has been a difficult start to the season for Pompey, who have yet to recreate the sort of form that saw them reach the League One play-offs and win the EFL Trophy last season.
Following their draw with Gillingham, Portsmouth are now 16th in the third tier standings, with 13 points from their opening ten games of the season, leaving them a place and a point behind yesterday’s opponents.
That form has only served to increase the pressure on Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett, and Saturday’s result did little to help the Pompey boss, with many fans taking to Twitter after the game to call for the 57-year-old’s departure from Fratton Park.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.

Mr Eisner, 18000 each week isn't a given if they keep serving up this dross! It's an entertainment business and there's got to be pay back from the club. #jackettout

Jackett has to go. He’s sucking the atmosphere out the club with 10 mins to go at 0-0 it should have been loud and aggressive at fratton today. Fans just expect to draw now
