Marc McNulty scored one goal and made another as Portsmouth stunned ten-man Championship club Ipswich with a 2-1 FA Cup third round replay win at Fratton Park.

Two goals in five first-half minutes from Ipswich old-boy Gary Roberts and McNulty booked League Two Pompey a fourth-round date with Premier League neighbours Bournemouth.

It was a notable scalp for the 2008 winners who went close to knocking Ipswich out in the initial tie at Portman Road, denied by a late leveller.

During a visit to Portsmouth Naval Base, David Cameron said the news would be an "economic boost" for Portsmouth, which lost more than 900 jobs when BAE Systems ended shipbuilding at the site.
