Find out what’s been making the headlines at Fratton Park today.

Conor Chaplin was at the heart of Pompey reserves’ 4-2 victory over Crawley Town this afternoon.

The teenager scored two and created another as Ian Foster’s side won their behind-closed-doors clash at the Blues’ training ground.

Adam McGurk was also involved in today’s friendly, and has called for calm Pompey heads.

The forward presented his time as a League Two title-winner with Burton as proof that sticking together can yield success.

While McGurk advises that the Blues keep their cool following Saturday’s defeat at Notts County, boss Paul Cook admitted he’s still searching for the right Pompey formula.

The Blues manager feels the balance of his team is still lacking at present.

Caolan Lavery was one man Cook brought in to help address the side’s balance.

And the Northern Ireland striker believes he is closing in on his best form.
