Portsmouth 2-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Portsmouth moved one point away from confirming a League Two play-off place with victory over Wycombe.

Marc McNulty twice shot over early on before getting down the right flank and drilling an inviting ball into the middle for Gary Roberts to slide in.

Pompey's Kal Naismith struck the post but Conor Chaplin made it 2-0 by slipping the ball past Ryan Allsop.

Gozie Ugwu's header was saved before Sido Jombati's free-kick made it 2-1, but the hosts held on.

Portsmouth, in sixth, are six points ahead of seventh-placed Cambridge United and have three games left.
