ENGLAND rugby’s head coach was in the stands to watch as Pompey’s dreams of automatic promotion were dashed.
Eddie Jones watched on as Peterborough raced to a 2-0 lead before Portsmouth brought the game level again with goals from Ben Close and Christian Burgess.
A 75th minute strike from Ivan Toney condemned the Blues to defeat and ended hopes of automatic promotion.
Speaking to the club’s website at half-time, Eddie praised the atmosphere at the ground.
He said: 'I heard about the fantastic atmosphere down here at Fratton Park and I certainly haven’t been disappointed.
‘The ball’s flying from end to end it’s plenty of entertainment out there.
‘There’s a fair few big guys out there throwing themselves around, there’s no shortage of contact out there.’
Jones was snapped in the crowd at Fratton Park on Tuesday night.
