Portsmouth 0-1 Blackpool: Chris Long stuns League One leaders
Last Updated: 12/01/19 7:17pm
Portsmouth's Sky Bet League One promotion hopes suffered a blow as substitute Chris Long earned Blackpool a surprise 1-0 win at Fratton Park.
Long fired the Seasiders to their first win in six games 15 minutes from time, neatly bringing the ball down in the area before drilling a low shot past goalkeeper Craig MacGillivary.
The sides played out a desperately uneventful first half with Callum Guy having the first attempt on goal after 11 minutes, shooting wide from the edge of the area.
Club captain Brett Pitman squandered Pompey's best chance of an equaliser by heading straight at goalkeeper Christoffer Mafoumbi from six yards.
And two minutes later centre-back Matt Clarke's volley forced a good save from Mafoumbi as Blackpool held firm.
