Match ends, Luton Town 1, Portsmouth 0.
James Collins' first-half strike saw Luton Town knock League One Portsmouth out of the FA Cup with an excellent victory at Kenilworth Road.
The Town striker hammered home on the stroke of half-time, connecting with an excellent left-footed attempt from Danny Hylton's lay-off to settle the tie.
Brett Pitman's fierce drive was tipped over by Luton goalkeeper Marek Stech early on and Hylton headed straight at Luke McGee from eight yards at the other end.
Collins put Luton in front during first-half injury time, while after the interval, Luke Berry's curler was palmed onto the bar by McGee.
The Luton keeper made a sensational save to tip Matt Clarke's looping header onto the bar and Alan Sheehan cleared Jamal Lowe's effort off the line.
Andrew Shinnie raced clear only to miss the target and Stech parried from Ben Close with Conor Chaplin volleying the rebound over.
With six minutes left, Portsmouth were reduced to 10 men, Nathan Thompson picking up his second yellow card for tripping Collins.
Late on, Olly Lee's chip was saved by McGee, before Stech prevented a replay, with a wonderful full-length stop from Close.
