Dave Nugent - making his latest comeback attempt from injury - was among plenty of 1st team players who featured in a behind closed doors reserve friendly with Liverpool, which we lost 4-1.
This is the report from the Pompey Site...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
NUGENT BACK IN ACTION AGAINST LIVERPOOL
A fit-again David Nugent could not prevent a Pompey reserve side losing 4-1 to Liverpool in a behind-closed-doors friendly.
The striker played 45 minutes in the match at the club's Eastleigh training ground - his first action since being sidelined by groin surgery.
And he made an immediate impression, winning a 19th-minute penalty which Arnold Mvuemba stroked home.
But that was as good as it got for a strong Blues side containing Kanu, John Utaka and Younes Kaboul.
A handball by Kaboul gifted Liverpool an equaliser on 25 minutes, Vitor Flora sending Jamie Ashdown the wrong way from the resulting spot-kick.]
The Blues went behind four minutes later when Mikil San Jose sidefooted home a corner.
Utaka fired narrowly over as the Blues tried to find a response. But it was Liverpool who scored again, midfielder Steve Irwin turning in a cross to make it 3-1.
Pompey twice came close to pulling one back in a game played in torrential rain, with Kanu shooting narrowly wide and Kaboul having a shot cleared off the line.
But Liverpool had the final say when substitute Jordy Brouwer completed the scoring with 10 minutes left, finishing a cross from close range.
Pompey: Ashdown; Lauren, Kaboul, Wilson, D.Traore; Nugent (Duffy 46), Mvuemba, Hughes, Utaka; Kanu, Sahar.
Liverpool: Bouzanis; Mendy, Ayala, San Jose, Kelly; Crowther, Spearing, Irwin, Weijl; Pacheco, Flora.
