With Pompey staring elimination in the competition in the eyes, a Ronan Curtis double snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

The Republic of Ireland international broke Yakubu’s record of the club’s leading marksman in the 21st century by heading home then firing the travelling fans into ecstacy.

And those in attendance and at home have voiced their opinions online after the full-time whistle.

Here’s the best of the bunch as Pompey progress to round-three.
