KENNY Jackett felt Pompey could have no qualms with falling to their first league defeat.

Jackett felt his team came up short in attacking areas as they failed to make the most of their possession.

He said: ‘We had the lion’s share of the ball in both halves - and didn’t do anything with it.

‘The final ball in the final third and having the desire to get into position wasn’t there.

‘On top of that there were a high amount of set-pieces and corners.

‘There were a high amount of corners from Lee Brown and there was nothing wrong with the delivery, but they were always first to the ball in the box.

‘Then in open play we got into good positions but we either didn’t pick out the right ball or want it enough.’
