  • Pompey are now winless in eight games in all competitions
  • Reeco Hackett-Fairchild’s free-kick couldn’t spark a Blues comeback

FULL-TIME: Burton 2-1 Pompey

90+4: Morrell floats a ball into the box, but Raggett’s header loops wide

90+2: Harness goes into the book for preventing a counter-attack unfairly

Six minutes of added time...

88: Cowley has moved Sean Raggett up front next to Harrison as the Blues push for an equaliser

87: Play has resumed and Hackett-Fairchild immediately gets booked. Burton just edging the closing stages so far

85: There’s a stoppage in play as a Burton player receives treatment. Pompey players unhappy with the time its taking for treatment to be given...

81: The ball breaks to Thompson whose well-struck effort deflects inches wide of the post. Garratt, however, claims the following corner expertly.

79: Bazunu makes a great save to deny Hemmings, before Curtis looks to be brought down in the box but the referee waves away any shouts for a penalty

75: Chances are few and far between at the moment, but Pompey need to time their runs better as a few times the Brewers defence has caught them out as they look to break in-behind.
