George Swan – No match for McNulty 5 – BOOKED

William Boyle – Run ragged 5

Femi Ilesanmi – Stuck to it 6

James Berrett – Overrun 6

Jonathan Greening – Disgraceful challenge 3 – RED CARD

Anthony Straker – Tried his best 6

Bryn Morris – Completely anonymous 5

Emile Sinclair (57 mins Ben Godfrey – Had no answer 5) – Not bad first half 7

Vadaine Oliver (75 mins Jake Hyde – Hardly a kick 5) – Rarely threatened 6

Subs not used: Michael Ingham, Taron Hare, Rhys Turner, David Tutonda.

Referee: Iain Williamson (Berks) – Not tough to referee 8

Attendance: 13,616 (141 away fans)

Man of the match: Marc McNulty – Goalscoring masterclass from the loanee who oozed movement, class and menace throughout to inspire Pompey’s romp.

We want him: Scott Flinders - The only player who can hold his head up high. Had it not been for some of his heroics he scoreline would have been comfortably higher.

We don’t want him: Jonathan Greening - Indisicipline so costly for York and mindless in its execution as Michael Doyle will testify.

Magic moment: Marc McNulty’s classy finish which sealed his hat-trick during the memorable Pompey romp.

Their boss: Jackie McNamara – Another defeat for his side, although Greening’s actions should attract plenty of criticism.
