@MacGillivray93 Disappointing day but we go again next weekend! #Pompey

@PompeyJake Really have to just put your hands up and say fair play to Gillingham. Got their goal and then every one of their players threw everything in front of our shots/crosses. Not seen a team want a win as much as theirs in years.

@stuarthardman Hate to say but I applauded that Gillingham goal. Thing of beauty. #Pompey

@PropPersonnel Not at our best, but let's give #Gillingham some credit. They played very well & defended how we have done all season. On a positive note, #Pompey are still 3 points clear at the top of the league, we got no yellow cards and no injuries. Onwards and upwards. #PUP

@POMPEYBENNY Can't win them all, still looking good up top #Pompey

@GillsSteve Not often you hear the opposition applaud a goal. Respect to the Pompey fans there.

@PompeyNev I thought Gillingham played really well. Eaves was outstanding (not just for the goal) you defended superbly in the second half. Congratulations.

@mikepfcwhite Pompey lost oh well it's football, however the real test is how we react after the winning momentum has just been lost, I say back to basics in training and we go again until you get it correct simple

@FFSChristie Bad day at the office for #Pompey. But it's October and it's our first defeat. It's the first time at least one of the 4 up top haven't had a stormer. Our aim should still be the play offs but we are still top

@colpurt57 Back home. The heavy pitch probably evened things up. I think Pompey will bounce back and go up as one of the automatic promotion winners.
