Matt Clarke found the target as Pompey continued their impressive run by seeing off Bury at Fratton Park.

They were on top for most of the contest, but were just lacking a clinical touch in front of goal against League One’s bottom club.

Their persistence was rewarded in the second half, however, when Clarke converted a Gareth Evans corner to seal the victory.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that won at Charlton the previous week.

Conor Chaplin dropped to the bench, with Kyle Bennett taking his place in a central attacking role against his former club.

There had perhaps been too much festive overindulgence on Friday evening, with the atmosphere feeling flatter than usual.

Not that there was too much to inspire them on the pitch in a first half that the hosts controlled, without looking overly threatening.

A tame Brett Pitman effort was comfortably dealt with, while the crossing of Evans was providing some problems for Bury.

Danny Rose had the first of three decent opportunities for the Blues, unleashing a thunderous 30-yard drive that Leo Fasan did well to tip over on 15 minutes.

Bennett and Clarke both had half-chances, as Pompey continued to probe away without getting any reward.

But those other two notable openings came on 34 minutes and there was a touch of fortune about both of them.

First up was a jinking run into the box by Jamal Lowe, with the ball ricocheting kindly into Evans’ path.

He was left with just the keeper to beat, but Fasan did well to spread himself as big as possible and make the save.

Then, just seconds later, an attempt from Lowe took a massive deflection, sending the ball fizzing inches past the post.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

There was a change just after the restart for the second week in a row, with Stuart O’Keefe withdrawn for Ben Close in the engine room.

But it was Bury who initially started stronger and a free-kick from Jay O’Shea had to be punched clear by Luke McGee.

O’Shea was also involved moments later, whipping in a corner from the right that skipper Nathan Cameron headed narrowly over.

Jackett made a second switch on the hour mark as Pompey continued their hunt for a goal, with Chaplin replacing Bennett.

And they did forge ahead moments later when Evans whipped in an excellent corner and CLARKE came charging in at the far post to emphatically head home.

Bury then replaced one former Blues striker with another to try to force an equaliser, with Michael Smith given a warm reception as he made way for Chris Maguire.

The new man immediately had an opportunity to level when he was brought down by Lowe, only to send his free-kick straight into McGee’s arms.

Pompey were still looking to get forward themselves, though, and a left-footed attempt from Evans dipped narrowly over.

The Shakers got more men forward as the seconds ticked down, but a lack of firepower meant they never really looked like getting anything from the game.

And it might have been a heavier defeat for the visitors, with Fasan getting down well to palm clear a snap-shot from Close late on.

Stuart O’Keefe was credited with the goal, although it looked like Josh Magennis had actually sent the ball into his own net.

It might have been a more comfortable victory, but Brett Pitman saw his penalty superbly saved by Ben Amos.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that beat Northampton in the Checkatrade Trophy the previous week.

Fit-again skipper Pitman returned to lead the line following a hamstring problem, as Curtis Main dropped to the bench.

There were two former Pompey ‘Player of the Season’ winners in the Charlton squad, with Ricky Holmes starting and Jason Pearce named among the substitutes.

The hosts were celebrating the 25th anniversary of their return to The Valley – which, coincidentally, was for a match against the Blues in December 1992.

They won 1-0 on that day and a similar outcome looked on the cards as Jackett’s side struggled to make an impression in the early stages.

For all of the Addicks’ domination of possession, however, they were not doing much to test Luke McGee.

The keeper had to deal with a couple of dangerous crosses into the box, but was otherwise well protected by his defence.

And, as the first half progressed, it was the visitors who started to look the more dangerous outfit going forward.

They almost broke the deadlock on 29 minutes when Pitman laid the ball off for Gareth Evans, whose fierce effort was tipped over the bar by Amos.

The resulting corner was only cleared as far as O’Keefe outside the box and his effort looped onto the roof of the net.

A couple of half-chances followed for Pitman and Evans, with the Blues sensing they could make the most of some nervous defending.

But they were almost hit on the break when Jay Dasilva fed Holmes, whose shot was tipped over by McGee.

The action soon switched back down to the other end and it took a vital Chris Solly block to stop Conor Chaplin from sliding Pompey into the lead.

O’Keefe picked up the loose ball and his long-range shot took a deflection to divert it wide of the post.

But it was Charlton who had the final say before the break and McGee was called into action to deal with Dasilva’s curling effort.


Half Time

(0 – 0)


Chaplin did not emerge for the start of the second half, with Kyle Bennett taking his spot just behind Pitman.

And the Blues broke the deadlock within a couple of minutes of the restart – although there was some debate about who should take the credit for the goal.

It was O’Keefe who was announced as the man to have converted Evans’ fine free-kick into the box, although some argued it was Charlton’s Magennis who got the final touch.

Holmes soon had a chance at the other end, but his final delivery was somewhere in between a cross and a shot, with the ball flying out for a goal-kick.

Pompey were still looking to get forward themselves, however, and Pitman was not far off target with one effort, while Bennett then forced Amos into action.

They had an excellent opportunity to double their advantage on 65 minutes when referee Andrew Madley spotted a tug on Pitman by Solly in the area.

It was Pitman who unsurprisingly stepped up to take the spot-kick, only for Amos to dive to his left to make a superb save.

That gave the home side – and their supporters – a boost, but the hosts were still proving difficult to breach.

A bit of needle started to creep into the game, with Evans shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Holmes, who then joined him in the book by fouling McGee.

Nathan Thompson soon became the third player cautioned, although he did appear to win the ball from Holmes cleanly.

There was plenty of action unfolding at both ends and when one promising Blues move broke down, their opponents broke quickly, only for Mark Marshall to shoot straight at McGee.

Pompey’s keeper made a better save late on, though, getting quickly down to his right to keep out Leon Best’s firm header.

And, despite late appeals by the home crowd for a penalty, that ensured the Blues made the trip home with all three points.

Charlton (4-2-3-1): Amos; Solly (c), Konsa, Sarr, Dasilva; Forster-Caskey, Aribo (Reeves 87); Marshall (Best 82), Clarke (Ahearne-Grant 75), Holmes; Magennis

Checkatrade Trophy


 

Portsmouth    2

Gareth Evans and Stuart O’Keefe were on target as Pompey cruised into the last 16 of the Checkatrade Trophy.

A small crowd were not treated to a chance-laden encounter against Northampton, but it was always the hosts who looked more likely to progress.

Evans completed an attractive passing counter-attack to open the scoring a few minutes before the interval.

O’Keefe doubled their lead in the second half and only some impressive saves from David Cornell prevented the margin of victory being even greater.

Kenny Jackett made three changes from the side that beat Plymouth in the league the previous week.

Christian Burgess returned from suspension to replace the injured Oliver Hawkins in defence, while the sidelined Kal Naismith made way for Curtis Main up front.

The other switch saw loanee O’Keefe recalled in the centre of the pitch, with Ben Close, who was nursing a knock, missing out.

A sparse attendance ensured there was an eerie atmosphere inside Fratton Park when the game got underway.

And the action on the pitch did little to warm the spirits of those fans who decided to spurn Christmas shopping to watch the contest.

There were a couple of half chances for the hosts, with O’Keefe’s volleyed effort flying over, while an audacious long-range free-kick from Christian Burgess landed on the roof of the net.

Neither side looked particularly threatening in the opening stages, however, as the game drifted along.

Main headed a difficult chance wide after rising above two defenders to meet Nathan Thompson’s cross.

Evans then drilled a low shot narrowly past the post, while Cornell – who previously had a loan spell at Fratton Park – just about beat Conor Chaplin to a loose ball.

The tie finally got going on 35 minutes, when Danny Rose slipped a fine pass through to Evans, who was denied by Cornell’s save.

Northampton had offered little at the other end, although Burgess made a timely challenge to dispossess Chris Long in the box.

And it was the Blues who broke the deadlock just before the break, courtesy of a fine passing move up the pitch.

Brandon Haunstrup released Evans, who in turn found Chaplin before bursting into the box to receive the ball back.

Chaplin dinked a cross into the centre, and EVANS was there to head home his first goal of the season.


Half Time

(1 – 0)


The advantage was almost doubled early in the second half, as Haunstrup delivered a dangerous low cross that Ash Taylor had to turn over his own crossbar.

But it then took a superb save from Luke McGee to stop the Cobblers from levelling, with the keeper diving to his right to stop Taylor from converting Lewis McGugan’s corner.

Cornell made his own decent stop when Main inventively flicked Rose’s centre towards the net, although the linesman had raised his flag for offside.

The lead did increase just before the hour mark, however, as Thompson cut the ball back for O’KEEFE to neatly steer into the bottom corner.

A third might have followed when Thompson stole back possession, but Evans’ effort from out wide flashed past the post.

Jackett made his first switch on 69 minutes, with Drew Talbot given a chance to impress in place of Haunstrup at left-back.

Evans and Chaplin were off target with shots, as the Blues tried to wrap the tie up with plenty of time to spare.

Main then saw an attempt roll agonisingly wide following good work from Rose and Chaplin to tee him up.

And Cornell made a string of fine saves to limit the damage late on, denying Main, Evans and Chaplin in quick succession.

Kal Naismith capitalised on a defensive howler to ensure Pompey saw off Plymouth at Fratton Park.

He snatched the ball from goalkeeper Remi Matthews and prodded home midway through the first half.

It was a deserved victory for the Blues, even if there were a few nervy moments towards the end of the contest.

Kenny Jackett made three changes from the side that were beaten at Peterborough earlier in the week.

Conor Chaplin replaced Curtis Main up front, while full-backs Nathan Thompson and Brandon Haunstrup came in for Matty Kennedy and the suspended Christian Burgess.

Evans continued to wear the captain’s armband in Brett Pitman’s absence – rainbow coloured on this occasion to show the club’s support for LGBT inclusivity – but was pushed into a more advanced role.

There were plenty of familiar faces in the opposition line-up, with Sonny Bradley, Toumani Diagouraga and Jake Jervis all starting, while Nadir Ciftci was on the bench.

After a fairly uninspiring opening, it was the hosts who began to apply pressure as the first half progressed.

The first decent chance fell to Brandon Haunstrup after he was fed by Chaplin and the left-back’s fierce drive was just about palmed over by Matthews.

Matt Clarke – playing in a more familiar central role – then did well to burst forward and square the ball for Evans, whose shot was deflected behind.

Chaplin also had a snap-shot from long-range that was straight at Matthews, but fumbled nervously over by the stopper.

But the Blues were almost caught out at the other end when Yann Songo’o was left in space in the box to meet David Fox’s free-kick, only to guide his header wide.

Instead it was Pompey who broke the deadlock midway through the half – thanks to a huge error from Matthews.

The keeper came out of his area to try to collect Clarke’s long punt forward, but was tackled by the alert NAISMITH.

Matthews tried to tug him back, but the Blues forward kept his composure to poke the ball over the line.

Evans soon had a shot that swerved wide, but Plymouth began to pose some problems as the interval approached.

They were not really creating any scoring chances, although Luke McGee showed good timing to come off his line and dispossess Joel Grant.


Half Time

(1 – 0)


There was an immediate chance for Pompey after the restart, but although Naismith’s shot had plenty of power, it was straight at Matthews.

And the keeper made amends for his earlier error with a stunning save to prevent Naismith from turning in Chaplin’s low cross.

Oliver Hawkins then had a shot deflected behind from the resulting corner, while Plymouth nervously dealt with another set-piece moments later.

But Jackett was forced into a switch just before the hour mark when Hawkins pulled up injured and had to limp off.

Kennedy was brought on to replace him, with Evans moving to right-back and Thompson switching to the centre.

Pompey gave away some sloppy free-kicks in the quest to protect their lead, as Argyle tried to get men forward.

They almost scored a second on 75 minutes, though, when Songo’o diverted Kennedy’s teasing delivery narrowly past his own post.

And there was another great opportunity when Chaplin stole possession and slipped Naismith through on goal.

Matthews came out of his box and the pair collided, with the ball rolling against the post before play was stopped so both players could receive treatment.

Naismith was initially cleared to continue, but soon had to depart and was replaced by Stuart O’Keefe.

There was a hint of nervousness creeping into Pompey’s performance as the seconds ticked down, but the visitors were unable to capitalise.

One throw did cause problems in the Blues back-line, although the danger passed when Diagouraga swiped at thin air.

The display of six additional minutes certainly caused some nerves among the Fratton faithful, but the hosts saw out the closing stages to secure the victory.
