Conor Chaplin grabbed a hat-trick as Pompey’s reserves swaggered into the semi-finals of the Final Third Development League Cup.

Paul Hardyman’s youthful side put on an outstanding display to hammer Bristol City 8-2 at Furze Lane this afternoon.

Adam May (two), Brandon Joseph-Buadi, Fahad Rwakarambwe and Kaleem Haitham also netted for the Blues in the romp.

Yet it was Chaplin with a second-half hat-trick who caught the eye, following on from the treble he scored for the Academy last weekend.
