As far as home debuts go, Ellis Harrison had a pretty good one for Portsmouth.
“We not only do it for ourselves, we are doing it for the fans as well”

The 25-year-old striker bagged a brace against Championship side Birmingham City in a 3-0 win for Pompey in the League Cup, netting in both halves to see the League One team progress to the second round.
Harrison joined Portsmouth from Ipswich Town this summer for an undisclosed fee along with Blackburn Rovers defender Paul Downing (per BBC Sport), and the striker has quickly made himself a popular figure on the south coast after his impressive home debut.
Scoring twice against a Championship side to see Pompey progress to the next round of the League Cup saw many fans take to social media to praise Harrison for his dominant performance.
Here is how some fans reacted to Harrison’s performance on Twitter…
