loa­nee Cooper, who headed in.

Three min­utes later, Pom­pey dou­bled their lead. A su­perb cross from Wal­lace found Con­nolly at the near post, who tapped in for his sev­enth of the sea­son.

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.”
