Stand in Portsmouth manager, Guy Whittingham, was quoted after the match on BBC Radio Solent as saying: "You're not pleased when you lose, but I'm pleased with the effort we put in and the discipline we showed the majority of the time. We just lost that little bit second half where we just started coming into the game and causing them some problems defensively. We went a little bit too far forward and lost our discipline at the back and got caught out. It's a huge achievement for us to be competitive at this moment in time. I think everybody's doing all they can and we need to keep doing that for our great fans".
