Great result. Hopefully Lenihan back for next game and rested. Pressure on Wigan now.

Two amazing assists from Graham, two clinical finishes from Armstrong, and two match-winning saves from Raya.

So, who will be MoM? I’m guessing Raya

Shocking 2nd half. Real danger of complacency ruining the seasons end.. Much like how the season began.

The ref played his part in helping us avoid defeat, could have given them 2 pens towards the end... We've been on a good run but that second half was awful, strong words needed from TM imo.

First half good second half poor and last 10 minutes we had a total meltdown and were all over the place.

Mulgrew and Downing were not quite at it today and couldn't deal with their forwards. We seem to go into total disarray once Graham and Dack went off. With Mulgrew not at it we had no leadership on the pitch. Fortunately we held on to win.

Samuel also missed an absolute sitter to make it 1-3.

I thought Bell on for Dack was a strange one at that time.

And yeah, Samuel's miss was a shocker.

Aye, it was a bad miss. We're lucky MK Dons didn't show up first half, that performance has left me feeling frustrated, not something I can thankfully say has happened too many times this season. Expecting a far larger effort from the players next game. That was not good at all, but we won, so trying to not go off on one too much but that second half... Anyways, vital 3 points.

Would not have won that in previous seasons. Sometimes you need to grind these results out. Sometimes you need luck. Sometime you need both in a game. Come on Pompey.
