Jones took in the Blues’ 3-2 defeat to Peterborough United, which ended their League One automatic promotion hopes. 

Kenny Jackett’s men found themselves 2-0 down before the half-hour, with Lee Tomlin and Ivan Toney on target for the Posh. 

Goals from Ben Close and Christian Burgess either side of half-time put Pompey back on level terms. 

But Toney’s 75th-minute effort condemned the Blues to a play-off finish this season.
