John Mousinho’s side came from 2-0 down to claim an impressive victory at the Select Car Leasing Stadium thanks to goals from Tino Anjorin (33 minutes), Colby Bishop (45+9) and Terry Devlin (58).
The victory maintains Pompey’s unbeaten start to the season, but more importantly, allowed them to open a six-point gap over second-placed Oxford, who were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Wycombe.
Today’s game was disrupted by tennis balls being thrown onto the pitch in the opening stages of the first half. However, the Blues eventually rose above that to record their 10th win of the season.
Here’s what fans on X, formerly Twitter, have been saying following the final whistle in Berkshire.
