Notts County coasted into to the FA Cup second round at the expense of League One rivals Portsmouth.

Pompey striker Izale McLeod smashed against the bar early on, but the Magpies pulled ahead when Francois Zoko nodded home Alan Judge's delivery.

Yoann Arquin's header from Jamal Campbell-Ryce's cross made it 2-0 against the competition's 2008 winners.

And the visitors' day was worsened when Scott Allan saw a straight red for a tackle on Campbell-Ryce.

In the ensuing fracas that followed Allan's sending off, Portsmouth first-team coach Ashley Westwood was sent to the stands.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Portsmouth managed Michael Appleton told BBC Radio Solent:

"I thought it was a poor game of football from both sides. I didn't particularly enjoy watching the game, especially after the performance we'd put in our previous two games.

"Both balls have come in the box from a cross that we probably could have stopped. It's two free headers which is disappointing.

(On Scott Allan sending off) "He has to keep his discipline a lot better than that and he'll learn from that, but it's our cost as we'll miss him for three games."

Notts County manager Keith Curle told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I think we earned the right to play today. It's a difficult place to come to, mentally as well as the physical duration of the journey.

"But the preparation, the planning were excellent - we had to be brave today and believe in what we were trying to do.

"I think it shone through in our play."
