Portsmouth 4-0 Mansfield Town

Carl Baker
Carl Baker has scored six goals in 17 appearances for Portsmouth this season

Carl Baker scored twice against nine-man Mansfield to help Portsmouth win at home for the first time in three league games.

Pompey's Gary Roberts netted his seventh goal of the season after just 11 minutes from the penalty spot after Kyle Bennett was fouled by Matt Green.

The visitors had a chance to equalise in the 28th minute when Ashley Hemmings picked out James Baxendale in the area, but he could only direct his header on to a post.

Mansfield defender Kyle Howkins was the first to be sent off after committing a second bookable offence on 57 minutes.

Substitute Alex Iacovitti was then given a straight red card after a late challenge on Pompey captain Michael Doyle in the 74th minute.

Noel Hunt sealed the victory for Portsmouth in the 84th minute before Baker got his first of the game four minutes later after weaving his way into the area and firing home.

With the last kick of the game, Baker scored his sixth goal of the season from 25 yards.
