Neil Allen delivers his verdict on Pompey’s players following their demolition of York City.
Brian Murphy – Very comfortable 7
Ben Davies (73 mins, Rommy Boco – Steady enough 6) – Involved in opening goal 8
Christian Burgess – Found it easy 8
Adam Webster – Unflappable as ever 8
Enda Stevens – Revelled in greater attacking role 8
Michael Doyle – Assists and midfield dominance 9
Danny Hollands – Ticked things over 8
Gareth Evans – Back to his best 8
Marc McNulty (73 mins Conor Chaplin – Brave goal 7) – Goalscoring masterclass 9
Kyle Bennett (76 Ben Tollitt) – Wonderfully enterprising 8 – BOOKED
Caolan Lavery – Excellent movement 8
Subs not used: Alex Bass, Adam McGurk, Adam Barton, Matt Clarke.
Scott Flinders – Kept scoreline down 8
Eddie Nolan – Out of his depth 5
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.
