Portsmouth take a 2-0 lead in at half time against Northampton Town.
Portsmouth have taken a 2-0 lead in at half time against Northampton Town at Fratton Park.
Jed Wallace's effort gave Pompey the lead but the goal owed a lot to great work from Nicky Shorey, who collected the pass from Ben Chorley before cutting back to his teammate to fire home.
Craig Westcarr then doubled the lead for the home side seven minutes before the break when he slotted into the bottom left corner with a smart finish.
Ivan Toney perhaps had Northampton's best chance of the half on 40 minutes, but his effort ended up going wide from the edge of the box.
