Match ends, Portsmouth 3, Oxford United 0.
Karl Robinson's first game in charge of Oxford United ended with 10 men and a defeat at play-off hopefuls Portsmouth.
Kai Naismith's early prodded opener had Pompey ahead at half-time, while James Henry hit the bar for Robinson's side.
Alex Mowatt then struck the post from a penalty as the visitors tried to equalise and he was sent off just moments later, shoving Nathan Thompson.
Two close-range finishes from Brett Pitman sealed it for the hosts to move them within two points of the top six.
