Manager Michael Appleton admits Portsmouth are looking at League One football for the first time since 1983 after a 1-0 home npower Championship defeat to relegation rivals Millwall.

Pompey could have moved to within seven points of the south London club with victory at Fratton Park, but instead fell nine points adrift of safety with only four games remaining.

"I'm realistic enough to know that we're going to have to win four games and unless we do we're going to be looking at playing in a different division," said Appleton, whose side were beaten by Harry Kane's first-half strike.
