The Blues’ interest in this season’s competition ended at the first-round stage, with former Fratton Park skipper Tom Naylor heading home the only gola of the game on 32 minutes.

The defeat ended Pompey’s unbeaten start to the campaign, with Paul Cook the first manager to inflict defeat on John Mousinho’s side over 90 minutes this term.

@scottpompey: Did not recognise that side, absolutely abysmal, outfought is something I can’t accept, absolutely shocking performance from every single one of them, no excuses, well played Chesterfield they 100% deserved that.

@monolocoUK: Awful, awful Pompey..Well played Chesterfield, well deserved. Some dire performances, but worse, injuries.

@LewITgaming: Well that was terrible from #Pompey. Would have been nice to have a cup run but is not to be. At least we can concentrate more on the league is the only positive for today. I can’t name one player who actually had a good game today.

@Hutchy657: That's embarrassing by #Pompey some of the players need to keep that bench warm.

@JackPUP_: Individuals today awful very very poor worst I have seen this season hopefully this is a one off.

@NWalesPompey: They’ve earned some leeway with recent form but today was nothing short of horrific.

@Willfrattonpark: Dreadful game. No style at all. Got schooled a lesson #pompey.

@StassSportsNews: Got to be the worst Pompey performance I’ve watched today. I just don’t know why we looked like we didn’t want to be there. #Pompey
