Portsmouth: Many fans couldn’t believe it when Kenny Jackett brought off Marcus Harness

With Portsmouth’s game against AFC Wimbledon remaining 0-0 in the last 10 minutes, Kenny Jackett decided to make a substitution.

The change he eventually made was to bring Marcus Harness off, replacing him with Andy Cannon, as announced on Portsmouth’s official Twitter account:

Jackett’s move did not go down well with many Pompey fans, who were left shocked by the fact the manager had opted to bring off Harness.

The winger had already shown his creative side during the game, having played 2 key passes and completed 2 dribbles, as per WhoScored, so many fans saw this move as a negative one with Jackett playing for the point.

In the end, it didn’t work, as Terell Thomas headed in the game’s only goal in the 92nd minute to take all three points for Wimbledon.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the substitutions, including posts from confused Portsmouth fans, can be seen below:
