Gary Waddock felt defeat to Bury today summed up Pompey’s season.
The Blues fell to a 1-0 loss to the promotion-chasing side through Ryan Lowe’s goal on the stroke of half-time.
That made it three defeats on the bounce as the season stutters to a close, after Andy Awford’s managerial exit on Monday.
Caretaker boss Waddock felt the result was indicative of how Pompey’s season had gone as a whole.
He thought the football played in the first half was decent from his side.
But he acknowledged they failed to produce after the restart as the Shakers strangled the life out of the match.
Waddock said: ‘It summed up the season really.
‘I thought we played quite well in the first half.
‘But we have given away a poor goal and it has cost us.
‘In the second half, Bury closed the game out quite well and showed their experience.
We didn’t move the ball well enough in the final third of the pitch. But I felt, overall, we deserved something from the game.Pompey caretaker manager Gary Waddock
