Southend United 0-1 Portsmouth
(21′ mins): Skipper Ben Close and Ryan Williams whistled agonisingly wide, while Rasmus Nicolaison bundled over as Pompey displayed their early intent.
The traffic remained distinctly one-way. Mark Oxley used his feet well to deny Williams. But when Tom Clifford was clumsy on Haji Mnoga, John Marquis made no mistake from the resulting spot-kick to hand the south coast club the lead.
