“We have to regroup and in that sense we can take the positives from our first half performance," Money told the club's official site.
“We still have two or three players that are finding difficult to last the full 90 minutes at a high intensity but I do feel that is coming.
"One thing they probably didn’t need was 45 minutes being run all over the pitch by a very good team. Unfortunately that is what has happened.
“They [Portsmouth] are a tough team to play against in terms of concentration and focus anyway, never mind having to do 45 minutes with 10 men.”
