Man of the Match: Gareth Evans - A goal capped a hard-working display from the midfielder who continued to show heart and drive when others had surrendered.
We Want Him: Luke Summerfield - An assist and stunning goal from distance from the midfielder who was allowed to dictate play for the York with embarrassing ease.
He’s All Yours: Danny Galbraith - Gave effort before offered very little constructive on the wing, while others have more effective displays.
Magic Moment: The final whistle bringing to an end a shambolic Pompey display in which a side destined for relegation beat them comfortably.
Their Manager: Jackie McNamara - He needed a result to avoid relegation last night and didn’t his team provide it.
