The only goal of the game came in the third minute, with Ryan Tunnicliffe continuing his impressive start to life at the Blues with a deadly finish.
The home side were unable to capitalise on their early advantage, though, and had to rely on some smart saves from keeper Gavin Bazunu to keep Steve Cotterill’s side at bay,
The win – the Blues’ third in the league – sees them sit proudly at the top of the table on goal difference from Burton.
1. Gavin Bazunu - 8
Some very good stops and sweeper keeper role intrigues.
2. Kieron Freeman - 8
Dogged defending, particularly when Pompey needed him most at the end.
3. Sean Raggett - 8
Supreme once more as impressive form continues.
4. Clark Robertson - 7
(Replaced by Connor Ogilive on 46 minutes): Came out for the second half, yet didn’t make it onto the pitch to suggest an injury issue.
