Any fears of being the victims of an Emirates FA Cup upset were quickly put to bed by Rasmus Nicolaisen.

The defender scored his first Pompey goal by converting a Cam Pring corner after just 108 seconds of a round two tie with King’s Lynn at Fratton Park.

Tom Naylor, Sean Raggett, Marcus Harness, Ellis Harrison and Jordy Hiwula were also on target in the 6-1 rout.

And now Nicolaisen hopes the Blues will be drawn against one of the Premier League giants in Monday evening’s draw.

He said: “I think it was a professional display from us. We did what we needed to and now it’s on to the next round.

“We trained on Friday and Pringy didn’t serve up any good balls, but then the first one in the game was a great delivery!

"It would be nice if we could now get one of the big teams. That’s what we hope for and then we can go for the surprising result."

“Happily I was on the end of it and after the first goal we kept going and we’re all really pleased with the win.

“It would be nice if we could now get one of the big teams. That’s what we hope for and then we can go for the surprising result.”

Nicolaisen was one of five changes by Blues boss Kenny Jackett, with the on-loan Dane making just two league starts since his summer arrival.

He said: “I’m here to play football and so I was happy to get the minutes on the pitch and have hopefully given the manager a headache.

“My aim is to be involved in every game and that’s why I came from Denmark, but this is a good team and there are strong defenders.

“I have to keep working hard and try to perform as well as I can in the matches that I get. I really like this club and the city.”
