Have your say

These were our player ratings for Pompey’s famous 4-1 Demolition Derby victory over Southampton 10 years ago today.

Tw-goal Lomana LuaLua edged our reporter Steve Bone’s man-of-the-match report on a day when every Pompey player shone.

9 - Jamie Ashdown: Supremely confident but only had one decent save to make

9 - Andy Griffin: Solid as a rock

9 - Dejan Stefanovic: Never looked under any pressure

9 - Arjan De Zeeuw: True captain’s performance

9 - Matt Taylor: How fired up for it was he?

9 - Steve Stone: Didn’t let the visitors have a moment’s peace

9 - Patrik Berger: His left peg wins foot-of-the-match award

9 - Richard Hughes: Arguably his best-ever game for Pompey

9 - Gary O’Neil: Revelled in showing Harry Redknapp his full range of talent

9.5 - Lomana LuaLua: Display would have terrorised the best defences around

9 - Yakubu: Coolness from the spot got it off and running
