It will be a video nasty when the Pompey squad sit down to review their performance against Sutton.

They did not have a single shot on target in the Papa John’s Trophy group stage match against Sutton at Fratton Park.

There was not too much created at the other end either, although second half goals from Isaac Olaofe and Louis John secured three points for the League Two side.

And Sean Raggett wants to make sure the Blues do not make the same mistakes when they visit Rotherham on Saturday.

The defender said: “We weren’t at it and everyone’s disappointed with that performance. You have to take learning from that.

“There was some positive momentum and we really wanted to carry that on, but weren’t able to do it.

"It was a strong team out on the pitch and for one reason or another, it just didn’t go right for us this time."

“So it was a down changing room after the final whistle and now we have to pick ourselves up to go again at the weekend.

“It’s probably not quite the time to analyse things straight after the game, but we’ll come in for training, look back and see how we can put things right.

“When you’re emotional you can’t always look too deep into performances and have to give it a little while.

“It was a strong team out on the pitch and for one reason or another, it just didn’t go right for us this time.

“You have to give Sutton credit because they came here, pressed us and harried us. They did really well.

“I think we should have dealt with that better, though, and hopefully we can get the win at Rotherham on Saturday.”
