League Two side Portsmouth shocked Championship club Derby to reach the second round of the League Cup.

Clement on Portsmouth v Derby

Defender Jason Shackell equalised with a header following a corner, before Johnny Russell curled a free-kick over.

Derby's best chance in the first half fell to Andreas Weimann, whose goalbound effort was blocked well.

The Austrian also hit the side-netting after a good run, with Pompey's Jayden Stockley and Gareth Evans having efforts saved by Grant.
