Steve Cotterill paid tribute to Pompey’s passing quality after victory over Crystal Palace.
David Nugent got the only goal of the game at Fratton Park to give his side a 1-0 win.
The reality was the Blues could have won by a lot more as they stretched their winning run to three on the bounce.
Cotterill was happy that his men produced a display which warranted success, after demanding that before the game.
Some of the football produced was as good as anything seen this season from Pompey.
Cotterill said: ‘It was as dominant a 1-0 win as you are likely to witness.
‘I was really pleased with how we performed, and I really was impressed with the football we played.
‘Normally I’m checking my watch every five minutes. I hardly did that.
‘So that shows how comfortable I felt.
‘It was a good win against a good side.
‘Palace will only move forward now, so we are pleased with the win.’
