Did #Pompey deserve to win today? Brett Pitman: “No”

Time to sign out for the evening and enjoy the trip back. Heads held high, let’s kick on.

Thanks again for your fantastic support, and to the @Pompey fans for your kind words. Up the Alty.

Two games we've played non league opposition, two games we've been outplayed, two times we've won 2-1 #ThatsLife

In 50+ years of watching #Pompey not sure I've ever seen a team as unlucky to leave Fratton Park empty-handed as @altrinchamfc were today. Good luck to them for the rest of the season. #gotoutofjail

It's called cup football. Better Pompey sides than this have been humbled by worse underdogs than that! Even during their golden age Pompey went out of the cup to lower-league opposition six times in nine years! As for this season, one defeat in 13 now, isn't it? (Eight wins)

Absolute scenes in the Fratton end from the @Pompey fans after scoring a 94th minute winner to secure a third round tie against a potential premier league team. Showing once again that fans in league 1 upwards are incredibly passionate

Respect to @altrinchamfc for a hard fought match. Glad we don’t have to play another game in December. Onto the 3rd round. Excited to see who we draw on Monday... @Pompey #PUP
