In an appalling spectacle, that moment was enough to separate the sides at Fratton Park this afternoon.

Kenny Jackett's men were lacklustre and well below-par throughout, missing the midfield presence of the recalled Ben Thompson.

They remain League One leaders, yet Naylor wants a marked improvement.

The midfielder said: '˜It was disappointing and frustrating, we need to be better in those sort of games.

'˜We knew it was going to be a hard game, like they all are. We need to start winning at home if we want to get anywhere in the future.

'˜That was probably our worst performance at home. We couldn't get anything going, we tried our best to get the crosses in, it just wasn't our day today.

'˜On other days we have been unbelievable, with an end product and goals going in left, right and centre. Today was just frustrating.

'˜It felt like Blackpool had everyone behind the ball. They just came for the point and fair play to them if that was the game plan.

'˜We just couldn't score '“ now we go again at Oxford on Saturday.'
