The Blues defeated Walsall 2-1 at the Bescot Stadium, with John Marquis and Ellis Harrison on target either side of half-time.

Kenny Jackett's men are, of course, reigning champions of the competition after defeating Sunderland on penalties last season.

A second trip to the national stadium in as many attempts is potentially now on the cards and here's how the Fratton faithful reacted to Pompey's win…

@PompeyCorner

It’s delicious. Since Seddon has started taking corners, you genuinely feel any corner could end up being a potential goal. Makes winning those set pieces all the more worth it now. He finds the areas that cause the keeper real problems

What a game @Pompey layed the two rest games @macgillivray93 had done him the world of good. You all played well on to the next game #pup #uptheblues

#pompey - good to see marquis and Harrison on the score sheet but same concerns at the back remain. Should replace both raggett & downing as their confidence is shot. @hajimnoga deserves a chance at right back, impressive again when given the nod.

Seddon reminds me of a young Andy Robertson. #nopressurelad #theboycancross

#Pompey lock up another away win, but again making very hard work of it late on. Takeaways: Hawkins & Marquis seems a promising little combo; Seddon’s left foot can change games

At the end of the day Pompey are going to Wembley again and there’s nothing anyone can do about it

@JBDShipp

Starting to see Christian Burgess as a modern-day Linvoy. Great in the community and every season he seems to start as third-choice but always ends up becoming a key player. 100% #Pompey’s best defender and continues to improve - just needs a partner now.

@Pompey_Jake

Although he only scored one, Marquis has a lot of chances tonight and for me, that's a positive.
