The Blues achieved that back in December, when they beat Grant McCann’s side 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.

With only two League One games played since, Pompey are understandably no longer top of the pile, sitting third.

However, all that can change come 5pm this evening – with another victory over the Tigers.

Although, let’s not forget about second-placed Lincoln, who are at home to Northampton today.

Fingers crossed Blues Bryn Morris can do his parent club a favour as he prepares to make his loan debut for the Cobblers at Sincil Bank.

Kenny Jackett’s full-time verdict

Pompey well beaten. And they were deserved losers 

MAgennis makes it 4-0. Abject defending again

Four minutes 

Harness swings in a low cross that runs across the face of goal but Hull clear.

Brown then puts in ball that Marquis can’t quite get his head to

The Pompey skipper brought down Honeyman late 

Docherty replaced by Slater.

Lewis-Potter replaced by Chadwick

White goes for goal but his free-kick is just over the bar 

Close shoots wide before he’s scythed down by Smallwood and wins Pompey a free-kick around 25 yards out 

Nice play from Pompey but Harrison slices his shot wide from outside the box
