This is the report from the Pompey Site...

ACADEMY STING HORNETS

Gael N'Lundulu was Pompey's hero, bagging a brace as the Blues twice came from behind to beat Watford at the Wellington Sports Ground.
The hosts enjoyed the majority of possession but always looked vulnerable against Watford's counter-attacking game.
And it was the visitors who took the lead on 12 minutes when Martin Sorrell got behind the Blues back-line and fired a shot past Liam O'Brien and into the corner of the net.
But Pompey were level thanks to an inspired substitution five minutes before the interval. Louis Castles replaced Joe Collins and with his first touch found Mark SMITH, who bundled the ball home past John North in the Watford goal.
Half Time: Pompey 1 Watford 1
Castles almost put Pompey ahead seconds after the restart when he raced through on goal but North was down at his feet to claim the ball.
It was Watford who were next to score, however. Sorrell sent a cross into the area, leaving a simple finish for Mike Bryon.
The impressive North made a great save from point blank range to deny Tom Kilbey - before the N'Lundulu show began. On 68 minutes, Matt Ritchie's fine ball set him free down the left. The initial shot was saved but N'LUNDULU made no mistake from the rebound.
Then with the clock ticking down, N'LUNDULU cut in from the left and unleashed a peach of a shot that flew into the net.
