Dion Donohue celebrated marking his Pompey return with the winner against Crawley.
Donohue’s assured first-half finish ensured the Blues progressed to the second round of the Checkatrade Trophy with a 1-0 win.
And it was a significant night for the Welshman as he put his injury problems to bed with his first start of the season.
Donohue said: ‘I think I’m going to ache a bit in the morning!
‘It’s worth it, though, and being back means a lot to me.
‘It’s good to be back out there and the goal obviously is a nice bonus.
‘The main thing, though, is the win means we qualify and that’s what this was all about.’
