Young defender Matt Clarke scored his first senior goal as loan club Portsmouth won 3-0 at home to Crawley this afternoon.

The youngster, who has recently agreed to stay at Fratton Park until the end of the season, found the net after 13 minutes to set his side on his way to victory before Marc McNulty and former Blue Gary Roberts completed the victory.

Josh Yorwerth limped off after 23 minutes for Crawley, while Josh Emmanuel come on at half-time as the Red Devils slipped to defeat.

Neither Cameron Stewart or Michael Crowe saw action for Doncaster and Stevenage respectively.
