Pompey succumb to a 1-0 defeat to the hands of Gosport at Privett Park.

That was the chance for Pompey. The ball found Reid just outside the five-yard box but his effort was blazed over.

Close from Bridgman! Was it a cross or was it a shot? His effort nearly found it’s way into the top corner but again was over the bar.

There’s a Gosport change with keeper O’Flaherty being replaced by a triallist.

Vincent fired in a lovely cross, which missed Gifford, while Jewitt-White fired over at the backpost.

Off the bar! Gosport come close with a header off the bar. But the resulting clearance found Jewitt-White on the wing but Dan Gifford couldn’t finish his cross.

Reid and Jewitt-White link-up again in the box but the Welsh youth international’s ball was fired acorss the goal with Burrell’s header at the far post over the bar.

Bridgman found space 23-yards out but his fierce shot was wide of the mark.

More bravery from Steward who came of his line and claimed the ball from Agebesi.
