Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl experienced his first taste of a Portsmouth derby on Tuesday evening as we made the trip to Fratton Park for the EFL Cup third round clash.
Whilst we didn’t have the game all our own way, a brace from Danny Ings in the first half, with further goals from Cedric Soares and Nathan Redmond gave us a comfortable 4-0 win by the full time whistle and progression and bragging rights were ours.
