Portsmouth recorded their first league win since the turn of the year at the sixth time of asking by narrowly beating Burton Albion 2-1 on Monday.
First-half goals from Sean Raggett and Michael Jacobs put Danny Crowley‘s men in the box seat before Gassan Yahyai pulled one back for his side five minutes into the second half.
As a result, Pompey have moved up into the top half of the standings but are still 12 points adrift of the last playoff spot currently occupied by Wycombe Wanderers.
