Portsmouth manager John Mousinho:

“I’m delighted with the result and, for about 75 minutes, the performance as well.

“It’s not how I used to take penalties, but as long as the ball goes in the back of the net then that’s all that matters.

“We deserved the lead at the break because we’d missed an open goal and had some other really good chances.

“There was a solid shout for an earlier penalty for a foul on Abu as well, but it was all about making sure we kept building in the second half.

“I was pleased with how we got the ball to the numbers 10s – Christian did everything but get a goal, while Myles was effective when he got into the right positions.

“Things got slightly easy for us at 2-0 up and we perhaps took our foot off the gas against a decent side that are a threat from set-pieces.

“You always leave yourself open if you don’t put the game to bed and we should have done that with a third and fourth goal.

“It just made for a bit of a tense finish, but that shouldn’t take away from the display as a whole because we looked really good before conceding.

“There were just some errors of judgment late on and I was scratching my head at how close the game was at the end.”
