Sheffield United look to have crumbled in the 32nd minute as they conceded their third.Wallace was the goal scorer this time, as the winger slotted in Connolly’s low cross.
The defeat was the first under caretaker Blades’ boss Chris Morgan, whose team will begin to prepare for the play-offs.
“We were nowhere near the team we were in the previous two games,” said Morgan. Whether they’ve given their all in the last games and today was bit too much, I don’t know. We weren’t at that races. Credit to Portsmouth, they played some great attacking football at times.
“Every time you come to Fratton Park you know it’s going to be a good atmosphere.We can’t hide behind that excuse.
“If you want to be footballer, you have to get used to and thrive in atmospheres like that.
“I think we need to freshen things up, change the personnel and give some people a rest. We’ve got two games to finish the season off and to get mentally prepared for the playoffs.”
