‘What a joke’, ‘Mess’ – These Portsmouth fans react to player setback in defeat



Portsmouth fell to a 2-0 defeat against Sutton in their Papa John’s Trophy defeat at Fratton Park last night.

As expected, boss Danny Cowley made plenty of changes for the game, with international call-ups and the fact he is focused on the league behind that decision. And, it’s one that backfired, as the League Two side struck twice in the second half to seal the win.

Another worry for Pompey was the injuries they picked up, with Paul Downing and Ellis Harrison forced off with knocks.

With Cowley making a half-time switch, and Harrison only coming in the 56th minute, his exit within ten minutes of entering the pitch meant that Portsmouth had to end the game with ten men.
