Goalscorers Brett Pitman and Kal Naismith were the duo selected by Sky Sports to conduct post-match interviews.

The former was named man-of-the-match by the broadcasters after bagging a brace in a 3-0 home victory over Oxford.

But both of his goals – netted after the visitors had missed a penalty and been reduced to 10 men – were teed-up by Jamal Lowe.

And the man who provided those assists is pleased to see his deliveries finished off by such a prolific frontman.

Lowe said: “We got off to a great start through Kal and it helped us build some momentum, with the crowd picking up on that. We just took it from there.

“A lot of teams play better when they go down to 10 men, so we know that we had to keep our concentration.

"You know that whatever’s going on in the game, there’s always going to be an opportunity for Brett to score."

“Oxford still had a decent amount of possession, but we limited them to very few chances and that was a positive.

“When Pitman’s fit, you know he’s going to get goals – and it’s the same with Naismith. They certainly proved that.

“You know that whatever’s going on in the game, there’s always going to be an opportunity for Brett to score. He can always pull something out of the bag.

“We’re constantly trying to get the ball out wide and then into the box for him to get on the end of. More often than not, he’ll get good contact.

“Their defender blocked me off for his second one, which was annoying because I wanted a goal myself!”

The result meant Pompey secured their first victory at Fratton Park in almost three months and saw them climb back up to eighth in the League One table.

Lowe said: “It’s been a long wait, but everyone’s worked hard towards the win. The fans have been patient and thankfully we’ve been able to pay them back.”
