Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley said:

“I think something we struggled with last season was believing that we had goals in us, believing that we could come from behind in a game.

We had the overall combination from staff and players. We were brave enough to go for it and play three centre forwards so that we really mixed it up. The players were good enough to adapt to that, despite not really working on it. We penned them in during the second-half and created the chances that got us goals against a really well drilled defence.

“We’ve talked about a winning mentality and we’ve worked on that. There was a belief about us: we kept on driving, kept on going forward. I think the first-half was really boring, the two teams cancelled each other out. I think Kenny (Jacket) would have wanted Portsmouth to come at us a bit more and we played too slow. We could not really open them up. I think both managers got stuck into their teams to be braver in the second-half and we saw a game that opened up. You could hear Kenny trying to get his team to drive forward and we were doing the same. The game then became end to end.

“There have been plenty of firsts in the six years or so that I’ve been here. To have another first – to be the first manager to take us into the next round – is something I’m really proud of. The fans were brilliant, they sung all the way through and drove us on. It was great that they were down the end that we were attacking in the second-half.”
