Omar Bogle broke the deadlock for Kenny Jackett’s side on 71 minutes, before Jamal Lowe made the match safe with his 13th goal of the season on 87 minutes.

Other than one first-half stop, had absolutely nothing to do against the shot-shy visitors - 7
Sloppy in possession at times during second half, but once again a formidable defence presence - 7

Made most of visitors sitting back in the second half and, with little defensive duties, charged forward on occasions attempting to influence attacks - 7
Breezed through the match with customary ease and barely challenged by a Scunthorpe side lacking attacking impetus - 7
Always an available attacking outlet down the left, pushing forward more frequently after the break with defensive duties not required - 7
Shrugged off a below-par showing at Walsall to return to his recent good form, maintaining possession and using the ball superbly - 8
Never lets the team down with his work-rate and commitment and once again it was a highly-effective display - 7
While Pompey demonstrated patience, he remained the chief creative threat throughout, capped by a classy finish - 8
(89 mins Dion Donohue): Didnt enjoy the success of his previous man-of-the-match outing at Walsall and his passing accuracy suffered at times - 7
(Gareth Evans 45 mins): A slip while chasing the ball forced his substitution and the Blues will hope its not a long lay-off - 6
(85 mins Oli Hawkins): Excellent impact continues with the vital breakthrough for Blues just when frustration was creeping in. Proven a superb addition - 8
(Otabor 45 mins): Fresh from his new contract, made some driving runs down the right, while is always a threat from dead balls - 7
