‘Blindingly obvious’, ‘Dead right’ – Plenty of Portsmouth fans react to manager’s latest comments

Fleetwood and Portsmouth shared an exciting 2-2 draw in League One last night, a game which was a little low on quality but certainly high in entertainment.

Joey Barton’s side are one of the surprise candidates for promotion, and they took the lead when on-loan Barrie McKay finished at the second attempt past Alex Bass. They went on to have the better of the play, but Pompey got level ten minutes before the break. Another on-loan player, this time  Norwich City’s defender Sean Raggett, angled a looping header over goalkeeper Alex Cairns.

Still Fleetwood impressed and Josh Morris hit the post with a free-kick as the half wound down. They went in the happier of the two sides, who were locked on points going into the encounter.

The home side came out in a different mood in the second period and took the lead through the unfortunate Harry Souttar, who deflected Ryan Williams’ cross past Cairns. Within seven minutes he had made amends though, bagging the game’s final goal from a Ched Evans header back across the area.

The stalemate left the two sides in fourth and fifth, still level on points with a four-goal swing in Pompey’s favour. After the game, Kenny Jackett revealed he wasn’t happy with the defending his side showed as they missed the chance to jump above Oxford in third.

He claimed they ‘didn’t get their defending right’, something the fans were quick to jump on.
