Conor Chaplin booked for excessively celebrating after helping out Portsmouth by netting Coventry’s winner at Sunderland
Conor Chaplin proved Pompey remains close to his heart.
The former fans’ favourite did the Blues a huge favour in the League One automatic promotion race.
Chaplin came off the bench to net the winner in Coventry’s pulsating 5-4 victory over Sunderland this afternoon.
Just two minutes after his introduction, the striker drilled home in the 79th minute to inflict a first home defeat of the season on the Black Cats.
With Pompey defeating Rochdale 4-1, it meant they moved level on points with Jack Ross’ men with just five games remaining.
And following his goal, Chaplin celebrated zealously – causing him to be booked for his antics.
It also led to chants of He’s One Of Our Own being sung throughout Fratton Park.
And Chaplin heeded the wish.
