Full-time: Pompey 4 Northampton 0

Morris on for Williams

Three minutes’ stoppage time

Williams deserves a goal and his charge to the byline ends with a shot across the face of goal and narrowly away to safety

Close on for Brown

It's four - and Harness is in on the act now! It's thanks to some lovely work from Cannon to the byline. Cross comes in and the in-form talent plants a header into the net.

HHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNEEESSSSSSSSSSS

Ten to go. Pompey looking comfortable. A win tonight makes it six out of seven in all comps
