Portsmouth   4 - 1   Hereford

Portsmouth put their Premier League struggles behind them with a resounding defeat of League Two Hereford to reach the third round of the Carling Cup.

Winless in three league matches, the hosts got off to the perfect start when Frederic Piquionne blasted the opener.

Piquionne then squared for John Utaka to slot home, before Niko Kranjcar fired in from the edge of the box.

Richard Hughes then slammed home a fourth, before Tristan Plummer earned and scored a consolation penalty.


Hereford manager John Trewick told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"I thought during the first half we were too tentative, and maybe in awe of one or two people on the pitch.

"We didn't keep the shape I wanted and we allowed their midfield players to break on top of us.

"Once they were a couple of goals up it was difficult to cope, there were some good players out there"
