Stevenage   1 - 2   Portsmouth

Stevenage v Portsmouth

Stevenage 1-2 Portsmouth

Michael Brown's diving header edged Portsmouth into the second round of the Carling Cup after a hard-fought victory over League Two side Stevenage.

Nadir Ciftci's close-range header from Matt Richie's corner opened the scoring for last season's quarter-finalists.

But Stevenage hit back when Darren Murphy's 20-yard drive took a deflection and beat Jamie Ashdown.

Brown met Joel Ward's cross to put the Championship side ahead again before Pompey closed out the game.


Stevenage boss Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"We created some very good chances against a decent outfit with some very expensive players.

"What I didn't like in the first half were the moments when we sat back on the game, when we showed them too much respect and a lack of belief in ourselves.

"The sooner our younger players learn that they're capable of winning and succeeding, the better for us all."
