They gave the Fratton faithful plenty to cheer about, with Pompey fans in high spirits in the second period.

And Whatmough felt it was a performance that thoroughly deserved all three points.

The centre-back said: '˜It was a good performance. First and foremost we wanted to keep a clean sheet tonight and then we always know we are going to get goals.

'˜Defensively it was a good performance and on the attack we looked dangerous. Overall it was a good night.

'˜When they had their spell in the second half, that's when we have got to ride the storm and overcome it.

'˜We know what is going to come. Every team we play is going to have a 10-15 minute spell.

'˜They had it, we had to just come through it and we came out with a clean sheet and a win.'
