Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales:
"Our game management, our game tempo and the chances we created...I just thought we were excellent.
"I was pleased from start to finish and for long periods we dominated and I thought the players rightly deserved the victory.
"Even at 2-0 it's hanging in the balance and if Portsmouth had got a goal it would have been a nervy end.
"But I thought we defended and attacked as a group and were worthy of the three goals, and the backline and the goalkeeper deserved their clean sheet."
