Portsmouth 0-2 AFC Wimbledon

Frankie Sutherland scored his first senior goal as AFC Wimbledon earned an away victory at Portsmouth - who had Dan Butler sent off after 68 minutes.

Sutherland opened the scoring with a curling strike into the top corner.

Ryan Taylor hit a post for Pompey but Matt Tubbs made it 2-0 before the break, scoring from a tight angle.

Taylor saw further efforts saved before Butler was given a second yellow card for a late challenge on George Francomb.

Portsmouth manager Andy Awford speaks to BBC Radio Solent:

"I'm angry, I thought we had turned a corner at Cheltenham last week with a good performance and good point but we haven't turned up today.

"The lads have got an opportunity to bounce back and put it right quickly, we need to be more consistent. That's been our problem all season apart from the start of the season where we were doing OK. We haven't been consistent enough and that's what we need to find.

"There is no giving up from me, we have a lot to sort out, we need to keep going and I keep saying we are going to work harder. I think we all work hard at the moment but there is going to have to be more done."
