In a game of two halves, the Blues were a much better prospect in the second half.
Here’s what Blues supporters on Twitter had to say after the victory...
@robert89__: Cowley saw Donny was there for the taking, didn't work first half but got the goals we needed.
Some great individual performances today from the likes of Thompson, Carter, Raggett & Hirst. Up the blues! #Pompey
@Perry_PFC: What a great performance from the lads.
@DJDcee: Regardless of the opposition and game play, it’s nice to see we can find the back of the net (thank god).
@pscanling: Wait, let me get this straight. I’m not going to spend the rest of my Saturday pissed about the #Pompey performance?
1st half was poor. 2nd half was much better.
I’m not ecstatic, but generally pleased. This is an odd feeling.
@joeydonsussex: A game of two halves there for #pompey, but most importantly got the job done on to the next one #pup.
@jackchapman_PFC: We were a different team second half!
What a turnaround. 6 points in a week where we needed them. Onwards and upwards #pompey
@MikeTattooed: The attacking formation worked! Was a bit concerned when I heard Harness was to be used as a wing back.
But we will take that all day long! BLUE ARMY!! #pompey
@mark11s: Credit where its due for the 2nd half turn around.
Don’t wanna see Walker and Hirst paired again. Looked so much better when Walker went off #Pompey.
@LewPeet: Louis Thompson was incredible today. Great to see him get MOTM and a standing ovation when he came off #Pompey
