Oxford United v Portsmouth: RECAP as Blues crash out of the League One play-offs
Pompey have fallen to League One play-off defeat at Oxford United.

It means Pompey are confined to a fourth year in the third tier, having lost to Sunderland in the play-off semi-finals last season.

Kenny Jackett’s snap thoughts
It’s not easy to break sides down and both sides found it difficult.
I don’t think anyone got on top and it was a case of grinding it out.
Their keeper has found the one save out of 10 penalties. Cam’s hit the target and hit it low, but he’s been a good player for us and needs to get over it pretty quickly.
Heartbreak for Cameron McGeehan
Not a better chance
