Full-time: Brighton 4 Pompey 0

Charge through the middle from the sub but he can’t direct his shot from 12 yards on target. Two to go plus stoppages.

Pompey extend Steele from a corner as Bolton’s header looks to be on it’s way until he extends a hand to push it away. The Blues, fair play to him, having a little flurry here.

Gyokeres turns Bolton too easily and it's four at the Amex. Could be anything now and to make matters worse Whatmough is hobbling and taken off for Downing

Jahanbakhsh has gone off (thank god I don’t have to write his name again) and Veltman with Roberts and Sanders on (and easier names to type)

Curtis and Marquis off for Pompey as Harrison and Cannon get a runout

Pompey buried after restart

Two quickfire goals have murdered Pompey hear as Jahanbakhsh smashes one in and Bernardo heads home a corner.

The goals came after Curtis won a free-kick in a promising position but his delivery once again let him down. 

Can someone blow the full-time whistle now please?

A look at Brighton’s second goal

Goal Bernardo header from a corner Brighton 3 Pompey 0

It’s an absolute piledrive from  Jahanbakhsh  as he finds space on the left outside the box and thunders home a finish which leaves MacGillivray grasping at air
