A number of Portsmouth fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Brett Pitman's display in Saturday's stalemate at Fratton Park.

The 31-year-old barely had any impact in the meeting with Gillingham before being forced off in the 54th minute with an injury and being replaced by John Marquis.

It was overall a very frustrating afternoon for the Pompey faithful as their team dominated possession but lacked any real consistency in the final third and came up against a goalkeeper in inspired form, Jack Bonham pulling off several smart saves.

 

Portsmouth's best effort came when Sean Raggett connected with Gareth Evans' free kick and sent a header goalwards but it came back off the post and the rebound was scrambled clear.

Here is what was said on Twitter regarding the £900,000-valued (Transfermarkt) player's display:

Although Portsmouth extended their unbeaten streak in League One to three matches, there was real scope for victory and the players' failure to take their chances has rankled with the Pompey fanbase.

The Fratton Park side is currently 16th in the table and up next is the trip to AFC Wimbledon next Saturday.
