Victory for Pompey.

A 3-0 win at Westleigh Park as the Blues get their pre-season off to a winning start.

A good exercise for Pompey, now focus turns to Gosport Borough at Privett Park tomorrow.

Burrell tries to score with the outside of his foot but his effort is deflected wide.

Goalkeeper Josh Oluwayeni is called into action and he does well to claim a ball into the box with Mnoga in the way.
