Pompey recorded their first League One win on the road in 2019, despite a late comeback by Walsall at the Bescot Stadium.
Brett Pitman opened the scoring from the penalty spot and Omar Bogle made sure it was a commanding lead at the break.
The hosts were much better in the second half, but Viv Solomon-Otabor swept home his first Blues goal.
The Saddlers did not give up, however, and Jon Guthrie converted two corners – the second right at the death – to restore some pride.
Kenny Jackett made three changes from the side that were beaten at Charlton at the weekend.
Skipper Pitman replaced Gareth Evans for his first start since the end of January, while Oli Hawkins made way for a fit-again Bogle up front.
And with Ronan Curtis suffering a freak injury on the morning of the game – getting his finger trapped in a door – Solomon-Otabor came in wide on the left.
Pompey made a bright start to the contest, although Bogle was unable to bend an early shot around Saddlers stopper Liam Roberts.
But they were temporarily down to 10 men when Matt Clarke reopened the wound in his head and started bleeding from the nose.
The medical team had to patch him up and with the defender requiring a change of outfit, he was stood without a shirt in cold conditions for a number of minutes.
It was during that time, however, that the visitors broke the deadlock, with Morgan Ferrier punished for a shove on Nathan Thompson inside the box.
Referee Trevor Kettle immediately whistled and PITMAN stepped up to send Roberts the wrong way from the spot.
Walsall were struggling to deal with the Blues’ attacks and just about forced the ball clear when Solomon-Otabor tried to convert a mis-hit effort from Jamal Lowe.
But the hosts soon had a chance to level when Ferrier raced on to a ball down the right and saw his shot saved by Craig MacGillivray.
And the keeper immediately provided the assist for Pompey’s second goal from a long punt up the pitch.
The ball reached BOGLE, whose shot appeared to be going over, only to dip on to the top of the post and bounce over the line.
Lowe thought he had added a third on 30 minutes after converting a quickly-taken Pitman free-kick, only for Kettle to decide Pompey had acted too soon.
Walsall failed to deal with the set-piece when it was played a second time and Tom Naylor’s strike was deflected behind.
Pitman then lifted a fine pass over the defence late in the half, although Lowe’s touch was slightly too heavy and Roberts was able to gather.
The hosts had been second best throughout the first half, but had a chance to reduce their deficit seconds after the restart.
A long ball forward bounced awkwardly for Clarke and Josh Gordon was not quite able to send his header looping over MacGillivray.
Gordon’s teasing delivery from the left then had to be headed behind by Lee Brown, as Walsall started to provide much more of a threat.
They were pushing Pompey back for long periods, but the defence were holding firm to repel the red-shirted tide before MacGillivray could be tested.
Lowe won a corner to offer some respite, but Brown’s cross was headed wide by Bogle to let the Saddlers off the hook.
But the Blues did have a third goal on 68 minutes – and it meant that all three of the players Jackett brought into the team had scored.
Pitman was falling to the turf as he sent a pass through to Lowe, who unselfishly squared for SOLOMON-OTABOR to slot home and open his Pompey account.
Bogle was soon withdrawn by Jackett and had his name chanted by the travelling fans as he trudged off to be replaced by James Vaughan.
It looked like it was game over, but Walsall gave themselves some hope when Guthrie nodded in a corner from George Dobson.
Pompey appeared to be seeing the game out with relative ease, only for the Saddlers to grab another goal in stoppage-time.
Another corner was scrambled into the net by Guthrie, but there was not enough time for them to mount any more attacks and the Blues were able to celebrate a victory.

Pompey failed to extend the gap on promotion rivals Charlton after going down to a 2-1 defeat at The Valley.
The hosts went ahead through Joe Aribo just before the break, only for Ronan Curtis to hit back with an immediate equaliser.
But Lyle Taylor restored the Addicks’ advantage early in the second half and despite a late rally from the visitors, they held on for the victory.
Kenny Jackett stuck with the same side that fired five goals past Bradford on home soil the previous week.
Nathan Thompson, Matt Clarke, Oli Hawkins and Ronan Curtis all went off injured last Saturday, but were passed fit to play.
Pompey started brightly and a dangerous delivery from Jamal Lowe was just out of reach for Curtis at the back post.
A cross-field pass from Clarke was soon nodded on first by Thompson and then Hawkins, but Lowe’s effort was blocked before it could trouble Dillon Phillips.
Charlton slowly started to take control of the contest, however, and looked lively without being able to test Craig MacGillivray.
When Thompson was dispossessed in the middle of the park, it took a fine challenge from Clarke to deny Jonny Williams.
And the hosts should have broken the deadlock on 20 minutes following a neat passing move wide on the left.
Williams played a quick one-two with Aribo and sent the ball into the centre to give Josh Cullen a simple close-range finish, only for his shot to hit the back of team-mate Igor Vetokele and fly clear.
Tom Naylor then diverted a Patrick Bauer effort past the post, while efforts from Taylor and Cullen were off target.
Clarke – who is normally so positive in possession – lost the ball to Krystian Bielik, although Taylor’s shot was comfortably kept out by MacGillivray.
But Charlton did make their pressure count late in the first half, as Aribo collected Cullen’s pass, turned sharply and drilled the ball home.
There was, however, still time for the Blues to level before the break, with CURTIS racing forward to convert Lee Brown’s corner with a thumping header.
Charlton Athletic 1
The Addicks made a strong start to the second half, although it was the visitors who had the ball in the net on 49 minutes.
Lowe’s shot was diverted into the net by Curtis from a few yards out, although a flag was immediately raised for offside.
Charlton did score soon after, however, to restore their lead after Clarke had attempted to clear Aribo’s cross.
But the ball ricocheted to the feet of substitute Ben Reeves and he squared it for Taylor to convert from close range.
Pompey made a positive reaction to falling behind again, although were unable to capitalise on dangerous deliveries from Lowe and Gareth Evans.
Jackett then made a double switch just past the hour mark, with Hawkins and Ben Close withdrawn for James Vaughan and Dion Donohue.
Pompey were trying to get the ball forward and persistence from Curtis and Vaughan forced Naby Sarr to make an error, but the defender recovered to scramble clear.
The Addicks then came close to extending their advantage, with MacGillivray getting down low to his right to keep out Bauer’s effort.
Donohue released Evans down the left with a fine pass on 73 minutes and the skipper tried to score from a tight angle, but instead fired wildly off target.
Brett Pitman replaced Evans soon after, as the club captain took up residence just behind fellow Vaughan in the forward line.
And he almost provided a leveller late on, with a fine ball into the box that was sent across the face of goal by Lowe and agonisingly out of reach for Curtis to convert.
A dipping long-range effort from Pitman was not too far over the bar, as the Blues started to look a real threat.
It was a vibrant end to the contest from the visitors, with Lowe and Pitman seeing shots blocked inside the box in quick succession.
But despite pushing Charlton back deep for the final stages, the hosts held on to close the gap on Pompey to two points.
