Ludwig Francilette - Giant French defender who left Newcastle this summer. Played against Chelsea and withdrawn at break on this occasion without increasing his chances of earning a deal 6

Connor Ogilvie - Got 75 minutes under his belt and produced a competent display following arrival after leaving Gillingham this summer 6

Layton Ndukwu - Intriguingly utilised in a holding midfield role despite usually operating on the wing and in an attacking role. Looked comfortable 7

Triallist midfielder - Looked comfortable on the ball and assured. Broke things up well and some tidy passing caught the eye 7

Reeco Hackett-Fairchild - Absolute rocket of a finish to decide the game in a busy display. Missed a decent chance for a second but did his chances of being involved Saturday no harm 7

Michael Jacobs - Played within himself but again showed plenty of bright moments. Clearly Pompey’s best player on display 7

Renedi Masampu - Didn’t help his cause with a shaky display in which he missed a clear chance and wasted the ball - 5

George Hirst - Intriguing first sight of new man. Led the line well, brought others into player, decent distribution and grabbed an assist. Mobile for a big man, too 7

Keeper triallist - Quiet half but communicated with defence and stayed alert - 6

Izzy Kaba - Youngster looked composed and secure in the second half - 6

Harry Jewitt-White - Hard to catch eye as pace slowed but looked more than comfortable - 6

Dan Gifford - Thrown up front and put himself about with non-stop effort - 6

Triallist midfielder - Very young triallist found it tought to get a foothold - 6

Harvey Hughes - Came on for Ogilvie and didn’t put a foot wrong - 6
