Match ends, Portsmouth 1, Southend United 2.
Goals from Will Atkinson and Barry Corr earned 10-man Southend United victory over managerless Portsmouth.
Andy Barcham's 20-yard strike after 90 seconds saw Pompey take the lead in their first match since Guy Whittingham's sacking on Monday.
Southend substitute Cauley Woodrow was sent off after only four minutes on the pitch for elbowing Jed Wallace.
But Atkinson slotted home to bring the visitors level and Corr headed in the winner from John White's cross.
Caretaker manager Andy Awford led off his Pompey players to a chorus of boos after their fifth straight defeat.
VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Southend United manager Phil Brown told BBC Essex:
"I didn't enjoy the first half. We came here, we knew there was going to be a big crowd. The last thing we wanted to do was give them something to hang their hats onto.
"Low and behold we are two minutes into the game and they score an absolute world-class goal. We could have been two or three down at half-time.
"We played better football when we went down to 10 men. That's the down side of performance, we actually got a hold of the ball when we went down to 10.
"It looked as if they were on the back foot [at 1-1]. We've got hungry lads at the moment. We weren't having a point. We've got all three."
