'Very attacking... criminal to leave out Close' - how Portsmouth fans have reacted to Oxford team news
Pompey fans have been reacting to today’s team to face Oxford in the League One play-off semi-final second leg.
Kenny Jackett has made three changes from the 1-1 draw at Fratton Park on Friday.
Steve Seddon, James Bolton and Ryan Williams come in for Lee Brown, Ross McCrorie and Andy Cannon respectively.
However, skipper Tom Naylor again starts on the bench, with Bryn Morris partnering Cameron McGeehan in midfield.
What’s more, Ben Close is omitted from the squad for successive matches.
Here's what the Fratton faithful have been saying on Twitter...
That's a lot better but still should play naylor
How Ben Close can be left completely out of both games is an insult. You got the trolls on here that moan about him, but, facts are, he’s our highest scoring midfielder, technically gifted, makes things happen, pompey fan n all. Criminal decision from our ruthless manager.
Unlucky on Brown to miss out but showing good attacking intent starting with Seddon.
Clearly in the minority but I'm quite glad to see Morris starting again, didn't do much wrong last time.
We can always bring Naylor off the bench if we need defensive solidity.
I thought Morris was good the other night. Legs won’t last 90 today though surely ! Very Attacking front 4 though. Let’s hope we take it too them for longer than 35 min
Great attacking selection. Let’s do this
Still no Naylor... it’s live or die for KJ after that decision
Not seeing the suprise with cannon being dropped.. He hardly sets the world alight... But I good option later on with his energy. Evans would of been my choice to replace though
Both full back changes are an improvement. Cannon unlucky to be dropped.
A bit strange, our captain not playing in the most important game and where’s Ben close ??
