An emphatic 6 – 1 win at Fratton Park for Portsmouth, saw them leapfrog their rivals Doncaster Rovers, and Plymouth Argyle to secure the Sky Bet League Two trophy. Pompey fans have taken to Twitter to react to being crowned champions.
After years of dire times, long after their peak in the Premier League, the southern coast outfit have finally pulled themselves out of the fourth tier and propelled themselves into Sky Bet League One, and have done it by winning the league!
The promotion to League One could be the start of a reawakening and rise that has long been expected of the south coast club.
Goals from Kal Naismith, Kyle Bennett, Jamal Lowe, Gareth Evans and an own goal from O’Shaughnessy saw Cheltenham Town experience an embarrassing final day of the season. Portsmouth has become the fifth side to win all top four divisions in England, joining the likes of Sheffield United, Wolves, Preston and Burnley.
