Match Summary Pompey tighten their title grip with five headed goals, making their nearest rivals look ordinary. The pick is Froggatt’s diving effort to make it 2-0, settling the team after a tricky spell. Only Scoular – ‘still prone to keep the ball too close’ according to ‘Ranger’ – comes in for any criticism.
