But the damage was already done, with Lee Evans’ 39th-minute opener and Tom James’ 59th-minute free-kick handing the visitors their first win of the season.

The Blues are still waiting on their maiden league win and sit 21st in the table as a result of today's defeat.

The Fratton faithful are far from happy, and that’s reflective in the messages posted on social media after today’s final whistle.

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

@andrewdarkperry: He's lost the dressing room. For pity's sake put an end to this. Listen to all the commentators - they are all saying the same thing.

@Limmy05: That was soooooooo bad. No patterns no cohesion nothing!!!!!! What have they done during pre-season. Simply rubbish.

Nearly every player Jacket has got rid off would walk into this team ...... Naismith !! Hawkins !! Pitman !! Rose !! Chaplin !! Roberts !!

@Mike50618589: 1st loss since last April at fortress Fratton....don’t worry though ...the board think this is the manager to get us to the championship....NO CHANCE

@mikeythomas2017: Time to go Kenny & Joe. Boring football is fine when you’re winning but we ain’t! Lost the fans months ago but the players ain’t playing for you now. Shambles.

@ryanstray1996: I'm sorry unless Jackett leaves I'm not renewing my season ticket next season I can't watch this poor football anymore.

@chrisha73699484: Nothing to be surprised about, players not playing for the manager. Get him out.

@barnard_mr: @Pompey Should count yourselves lucky that fans weren’t allowed back in today.

@oscarjpearson: First time I’m saying it because I’ve always respected him, but that’s enough. KJ has to go. This weekend. PUP.

@GregAdampfc: Losing to a team in dire straits, enough is enough, he's lost the players & fans.

@beiderbecks: How much more of Jackett do we have to put up with?
