The penalties taken at the end of Pompey’s final Papa Johns Trophy group match did not have a lot riding on them.
A 1-1 draw after 90 minutes at Fratton Park meant that visitors AFC Wimbledon had secured top spot in Southern Group A, with the Blues joining them in the last 32 as runners-up.
But try telling keeper Josh Oluwayemi that securing a bonus point by winning the shoot-out 3-1 meant nothing.
He made three fine saves to deny Kwaku Frimpong, Courtney Senior and Aron Sasu and cap an impressive individual display.
The summer signing from Tottenham said: “I was just buzzing. The fans were great and it was a good night for me.
“I’ll be honest – a lot of it is down to luck, although there is stuff you can do in order to improve your chances.
"I thought we could have managed the game a bit better, but we’ve qualified for the next round, so I’m happy."
“If you’re not cool, calm and collected in the moment, then you definitely won’t save as many as you could.
“We had to survive the storm a bit in the second half and it was disappointing because you want to keep a clean sheet.
“I thought we could have managed the game a bit better, but we’ve qualified for the next round, so I’m happy.
“We’ve won this competition before and reached finals. It’s a great way to stamp our mark and give the supporters something to be proud about.”
A wet and blustery night on the south coast did not exactly make life easier for Oluwayemi or his team-mates.
He said: “It was windy and rainy, so you’ve got to adjust your position and try to slow things down a bit.
“It's going to be fast and zippy. It’s a hard one for keepers in general, but you have to find a way to adapt and help your team.”
