STAR MAN: Jamie Ashdown

Yet another influential display from the re-born keeper whose season just gets better and better.

MAGIC MOMENT: Pompey's highly fortuitous – yet deserved – equaliser through Nugent.

LET'S 'AVE HIM: Liam Trotter

The lively youngster caused plenty of problems and capped it off with a goal.

HE'S ALL YOURS: James Henry

Wingman struggled to get involved and became a peripheral figure.

THE BOSS: Kenny Jackett

Deservedly led at the break but pinned back in the second half.

MAN IN THE MIDDLE: David Phillips (Sussex)

Not bad at all
