Pompey fans on social media are understandably unhappy after the Blues suffered a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Blackpool.

A Jerry Yates effort on 81 minutes settled matters, condemning Kenny Jackett’s side to a second straight loss and their fourth in seven matches.

It leaves fifth-placed Pompey seven points off the automatic play-off places and many believing a top-two spot is now beyond them.

Here’s a selection of the views shared on Twitter.

@donbouf: Embarrassing at home again, no shots on target!! Rubbish Pompey.

@jmcclaf: Pompey are shocking!

Created absolutely nothing - you won't score if you don't get the ball in the box!

It's boring, predictable football and never changes!

@PompeyViking62: Pompey are an abysmal product at home and in the second half all together.

Ultimately when a team’s defence is set up, Blues are just a series of languid waves slightly brushing against an undisturbed wall.

Their inability to create from more than 30 yards or 30 minutes is bad.

Waddles77: Not one for overreacting, it's a long season, but this pattern keeps happening.

The odd good win, then some absolutely dire performances all within the same breath.

The biggest gripe is the football being played, win or lose.

At least under Cook we played good football!

@X_LindseyLou_X: Another poor performance Pompey.

@RayCampbellSays: Still lethargic, poor passing, no urgency and defending mistakes.

Awful form recently and you can kiss goodbye to an automatic spot!!

Even play-offs might be at risk.

@stevenphillips7: What has happened to this team? Depressing.

@TheChief657: We picked a hell of a time to forget how to win games, looked toothless in the past few weeks.

Teams sit deep and wait for their chance, need a big improvement Pompey.

@JIMBOjamesellis: Such an outdated "efficient" style of football, nothing to go yeah that was good, no one running forward, talk about wanting promotion, nah #pompey.
