Oliver Hawkins bagged a brace to send Portsmouth on their way to a comfortable 2-0 victory over MK Dons at Fratton Park.The home side started brightly and had their first chance in the 10th minute when Kyle Bennett’s cross went just inches past the oncoming Jamal Lowe.Hawkins then fired Pompey into an early lead four minutes later when he smashed his effort into the roof of the net from close range after being picked out by Matty Kennedy.

MK Dons had their first real chance in the 40th minute when a Christian Burgess slip allowed Osman Sow to run in on goal but the striker was denied by a last-ditch tackle from Matt Clarke.And the visitors were then punished on the stroke of half-time as Lowe won the ball back before finding Hawkins who brushed his effort past Lee Nicholls.MK Dons had a chance to peg a goal back in the 71st minute after a goalmouth scramble but Sow was unable to prod the ball past Luke McGee.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPortsmouth1McGee20Thompson6Burgess5Clarke17Donohue7O’Keefe33Close18Lowe23Bennett11KennedyBooked at 51minsSubstituted forEvansat 81’minutes9HawkinsSubstitutes4Rose22Naismith25Talbot26Evans32Oxlade-Chamberlain35Bass38HaunstrupMK Dons1NichollsBooked at 90mins25BrittainSubstituted forWilliamsat 41’minutesBooked at 45mins5Wootton19Ebanks-LandellBooked at 90mins12Golbourne6Upson8CisséSubstituted forAgardat 66’minutes21NesbittSubstituted forAnekeat 45’minutes26Gilbey7Ariyibi9SowSubstitutes2Williams3Lewington4Walsh10Aneke13Sietsma14Agard15SeagerReferee:Graham HorwoodAttendance:17,608Match StatsHome TeamPortsmouthAway TeamMK DonsPossessionHome56%Away44%ShotsHome11Away6Shots on TargetHome3Away1CornersHome5Away6FoulsHome16Away17Live TextPosted at Match ends, Portsmouth 2, MK Dons 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, Portsmouth 2, MK Dons 0.Posted at 90’+3′ Ben Close (Portsmouth) wins a free kick in the attacking half.Posted at 90’+3′ Foul by Ed Upson (MK Dons).Posted at 90’+2′ Matthew Clarke (Portsmouth) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Posted at 90’+2′ Foul by Osman Sow (MK Dons).Posted at 90’+2′ Attempt blocked.
