Pompey star Marcus Harness wowed the Fratton Park crowd before the game with Rotherham United.

Well, Portsmouth substitute Marcus Harness rattled in a superb right-footed humdinger recently. But, the strike didn’t happen during the League One clash with Rotherham United.

Pompey won the tie 3-2 with Harness starting from the bench; however, that didn’t stop the 23-year-old from producing a stellar display during the pre-game warm-up to delight the Fratton Park faithful after smashing the crossbar with a left-footed drive.

The attacker was subbed on by manager Kenny Jackett with 12-minutes left, replacing Ryan Williams. Pompey fans though are keen for the exiting youngster to start more matches.
