Pompey are in the recruitment for a new manager after the departure of Kenny Jackett.

The 59-year-old’s reign of almost four years came to an end on Sunday following the humbling Papa John’s Trophy final defeat to League Two Salford the previous day.

Now the Blues need a new chief to come in and reignite the League One play-off push with 12 games remaining.

Joe Gallen took charge of last night’s 1-0 loss to Peterborough, which saw Pompey slip to 10th in the table.

Surely now chief executive Mark Catlin will look to appoint Jackett’s successor before the crunch clash against top-six rivals Ipswich on Saturday.

Catlin spoke to Michael Eisner and the Fratton Park board yesterday, discussing managerial options such as Danny Cowley and Daniel Stendel.
