Pompey continued their League One title charge with a 2-1 victory at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday. 

The Blues delivered a gutsy second-half performance to ensure they held on to all three points at Kingsmeadow.

First-half goals from Tom Naylor and Gareth Evans gave the visitors the lead, but James Hanson’s 63rd-minute effort sparked a fightback from the Wombles.

However, the Blues defended gallantly and ensured they retained a three-point lead from Peterborough at the summit of the table.

Here’s what the Fratton faithful had to say about Pompey’s performance on Twitter...


Pompey had to dig deep to hold on to win at Wimbledon. Deserved it on first hour domination. Lost control after AFC scored though.

Thats how you bounce back from your first league defeat of the season, you win again! and deservedly so!


Big 3 points nice to see grinding out games breath of fresh air. But please Wimbledon sort your away end out it’s like musical chairs trying to see the action #pompey


It was scintillating first half display by #pompey with Evans and Lowe running amok at Kingsmeadow. The second half was a case of weathering the #AFCW storm in a professional composed manner. Clarke is a rock.


It really was a game of two halves. Saw both sides of Pompey. Important win after last weeks loss at home.


As a #Pompey fan thank you to everyone at @AFCWimbledon and in particular @TennaiW I was at the game with my son who has Down Syndrome who wanted a programme before they went on sale Tennai went into the ground and came back with one for him. Always a real friendly club.


Massive win today against the True Dons. Still top. Another game down and on to the next one #Pompey


Another big result in the bag #Pompey


We wobbled when they went long 2nd half after bossing 1st. Still deserved hard-fought victory though. Gutsy team performance #pompey#
