Kilbey hits a hat-trick in reserve win

Pompey's 2nd string recorded a 3rd win in 4 games - extending this unbeaten run to 4 in the process - with a 3-0 away win over West Brom on Monday.

Young Tom Kilbey - pictured below - grabbed a hat-trick as we recorded a second win over the Baggies in less than a week, this time at the Hawthorns.

KILBEY TREBLE SINKS BAGGIES

West Bromwich Albion Reserves 0 Pompey Reserves 3

A Tom Kilbey hat-trick gave Pompey Reserves victory against their West Brom counterparts at The Hawthorns.

It was the reserves' second victory over the Baggies in under a week following a 1-0 triumph at Westleigh Park last Tuesday.

Zak Martin set up Juan Carlos Menseguez for the game's first chance but the striker's effort flew high over the bar.

Sebastian Lake-Gaskin then floated a 25-yard shot round Jamie Ashdown but - fortunately for Pompey - also round the post.

The hosts were dominating and Luke Moore shot straight at Ashdown, before heading Lake-Gaskin's cross narrowly over.

Lake-Gaskin was causing all sorts of problems and his goal-bound effort was deflected wide by Martin Cranie.

Pompey were guilty of giving the ball away far too often but the Baggies tended to over-play and were unable to capitalise.

The visitors finally tested Dean Kiely on 28 minutes, with the former Blues keeper comfortably holding onto Marlon Pack`s header.

Then, on 41 minutes, Pompey went agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock when Gautier Mahoto's 25-yard free-kick rattled against the crossbar.

But they did take the lead in first-half stoppage time. Mahoto's corner was sent back across the face of goal by Pack for KILBEY to dive in and head home.

Half Time: West Brom 0 Pompey 1

Pompey almost extended their advantage early in the second half but Luke Wilkinson just failed to connect with the ball after Kilbey's shot was spilled by Kiely.

The Blues were now looking completely in control and Kiely's fingertips were stung once more, this time keeping out Mahoto's fine effort.

But he could do nothing to stop KILBEY from scoring his second on 67 minutes. Pablo Navas Alors brilliantly controlled Ashdown's long clearance and found Kilbey, who hammered the ball low into the net.

Ashdown did have to make one brilliant save soon after, tipping Mensegues' shot round the post after a rare Albion attack.

But Pompey were soon on the hunt for more goals and Mark Smith should have hit the target when he found himself with just Kiely to beat.

A third goal did arrive in stoppage time, however, when KILBEY seized upon some uncertainty in the Baggies back-line to finish with aplomb.

Pompey almost had a fourth right at the death, with Youssouf Mulumbo perilously close to turning Gael Nlundulu's cross into his own net.
