Match Summary 'What's wrong with your team?' asks a Daily Express reporter. 'I don't know. You tell me,' replies Jackson. Pompey have all the possession, but ordinary City nick it when Munro’s run and shot falls kindly for Smith. A fan runs on to threaten the ref when he ignores a City penalty appeal.
