Luton Town are through to the FA Cup Second Round after knocking out League One outfit and 2008 winners Portsmouth.

The only goal of the game was scored by James Collins in the final moments of the first half, as the striker volleyed in Danny Hylton’s pass.

The Hatters also saw a goal disallowed after half-time due to an offside in the build-up before Hylton put the ball in, while Hylton came close moments before Luton’s winner. Luke Berry and Andrew Shinnie came closest with attempts for a second.

Portsmouth had chances of their own, with Brett Pittman denied in the opening stages of the match, while home keeper Marek Stech made big stops after the Luton goal to deny Matt Clarke and Ben Close.

The visitors ended the game a man light after they had Nathan Thompson dismissed for a second yellow card in the final 20 minutes.

The result means Luton will advance to next stage, and with it a place in the Second Round draw on Monday (06/11).
