Southend United 0-3 Portsmouth

(78′ mins): Oxley superbly clawed out Nicolaisen’s goal-bound header, while Andrew Cannon was off target. In between, Harry Kyprianou not far away from reducing the arrears as the home side staged a rare assault of their own.

But another Portsmouth goal wasn’t far away. Curtis again struck from distance – but the game had long since ceased to be anything of  a contest.
