Portsmouth 1-2 Oldham Athletic

Eoin Doyle came back to haunt his former side with a double which earned Oldham victory over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

Doyle had the first chance of the match when his 25-yard strike rebounded back off the post.

The striker remained persistent, though, and was rewarded with a goal after pouncing on a loose ball to tap in past Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee.

Pompey's Jamal Lowe then went close for the home side when he weaved his way into the box before firing his shot at the post.

But Doyle was on hand to grab Oldham's second of the game just after the break when he took advantage of a mistake by Drew Talbot to run clear and lob McGee.

Pompey skipper Brett Pitman pulled a late goal back for the home side when he struck from Lowe's cross.
