It was by far Pompey’s worst performance of the season and the size of the reverse could have been greater.

But the supporters remained upbeat and it didn’t go unnoticed.

Accy chairman Andy Holt would have revelled in every minute as his club run riot.

However, he was also impressed how much noise the Fratton faithful made.

Holt wrote on Twitter: ‘I’m saying @Pompey fans are magic. Sang to the end. Not as good as @ASFCofficial fans but great support!’
