He should have a good chance of doing that, having promised to keep changes to his starting XI to a minimum.

However, with Pompey scheduled to play Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night, it wouldn’t surprise many if one eye at least is on that game.

  • Pompey looking to progress to third round of the FA Cup
  • Boss has never lost to a non-league side in the Cup
  • Jackett makes five changes
  • Nicolaisen nets opener after just two minutes
  • Naylor adds second on 30 minutes
  • Raggett notches third in 52nd minute
  • Harness bags fourth on 58 minutes
  • Harrison notches fifth from penalty spot
  • Hiwula makes it six with first Pompey goal

Kenny Jackett’s F/T verdict

Raggett hits the post with the last kick of the game. He nods HArness’ free-kick off the woodword.

A comfortable win for Pompey as they move into the third round of the Cup

Three minutes 

Southwell almost nothces his second of the game but Bass makes a good stop at his near post 

Marquis should hit the target but he heads wide when in all sorts of space 

Harness almost adds a seventh when his shot from the edge of the box heads for a top corner, but Mair makes a fine save to his left 

Marquis on for Harrison

80 - GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLL

This is getting silly. Hiwula now nets his first Blues goal! 

What a finish that was as well. From the edge of the box, he bends a right-footed shot into the far corner
