It all started so well for Pompey in their conclusion to the 2021/22 campaign at Sheffield Wednesday.

But Clark Robertson conceded that they were ultimately well below par in a 4-1 defeat to an Owls outfit who secured their play-off spot.

George Hirst had fired the Blues ahead against his former club before Lee Gregory, Saido Berahino, Jordan Storey and George Byers fired back for the hosts.

And Robertson was frustrated that Pompey were in such generous mood when they were defending set-pieces.

The skipper said: “It’s obviously a disappointing end to the season and we were looking to finish on a high.

“I thought we started the game really well, got the early goal and were able to quieten a really large crowd.

"We’ve had a strong end to the season – particularly at home – and are just disappointed we couldn’t finish that off."

“We were moving the ball around nicely and made them nervous, but the equaliser gave Sheffield Wednesday a big lift.

“I don’t feel that we were good enough physically and conceded from three set-pieces, which is unlike us.

“It became stretched and the rest of the first half was difficult for us, although I thought we were better after the break.

“We still weren’t exactly at our best, but we created some chances to get back into things and just couldn’t take it.

“It’s always going to be difficult to come back from the position we were in when you’re away from home, though.

“We’ve had a strong end to the season – particularly at home – and are just disappointed we couldn’t finish that off.”
