A FOX halted Portsmouth’s League One top-two clash with Derby.

Fans were stunned as the intruder emerged from nowhere to delay the game as County led 2-1 at Fratton Park in a thrilling 2-2 draw.

The Fox held up the Rams as it showed the fastest two pairs of legs on the pitch – racing from the penalty box to the corner flag.

Players from both sides could only stand and watch before the unexpected invader was finally cleared from the pitch.

Many observers pointed out that the Foxes – Leicester – had been playing 24 hours earlier.

And one jobsworth fan warned the animal on X: “You can’t run there mate.”

But other viewers noted the poor condition of the fox’s fur.

“Poor thing needs a vet,” commented one fan.

The match resumed with leaders Portsmouth desperately searching for an equaliser.

Derby winger Joe Ward had struck twice in 12 minutes before the break, with Pompey frontman Abu Mamara netting inbetween.

And after a fox on the pitch it was Moxon on his best best shooting form who brilliantly earned a draw.

Namely, it was sub Owen Moxon who thumped a stunner on 77 minutes to restore Portsmouth’s five-point advantage at the top.

However, Derby are still four points clear of third-placed Bolton.
