Portsmouth manager Paul Cook conceded his side's League Two defeat by Exeter City was "one of his worst days" in charge of the club.

Saturday's 1-0 loss at Fratton Park saw Pompey slip to fifth place, four points off an automatic promotion spot.

"I'm very disappointed, very disillusioned, very everything after that," Cook told BBC Radio Solent.

"It was a scrappy game in general with few chances, we didn't create and we never had control."

A first home league defeat since the end of November left Cook frustrated at full time.

"It's one of my lowest points as manager at this club," he said. "It's a terrible day for us in my opinion, it's a poor day for me, a poor day for the players and that's where we are.

"When you are manager of this club as long as I've been, you seem to be long-serving at 18 months. But, that's football today and the way the game is."
