Pompey will be hoping for a better run in this season’s Carabao Cup.

Last term, the Blues fell at the first hurdle. They suffered a a 2-1 extra-time defeat to Championship outfit Cardiff City.

Jackett’s men took the lead in south Wales when Bluebirds defender Sean Morrison diverted Kal Naismith’s cross into his own net before half-time. 

However, Neil Warnock’s side were level early in the second period through former Pompey loanee Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

And it was another ex-Fratton player who netted the winning goal to dump Pompey out of the competition. 

With the game looking like it was heading for penalties, Greg Halford popped up inside the box to tuck home the winner.

The Blues are bidding to reach the second round of the competition for the first time since 2015.

On that occasion, Paul Cook’s outfit were knocked out by Reading.

Chaplin handed Pompey a 40th-minute strike, before Nick Blackman and Garath McCleary both scored for the Royals in the second half.
