Portsmouth manager Michael Appleton hailed his struggling side's 2-0 win over play-off chasing Hull as the best performance of his time in charge at Fratton Park.

Two goals in four first-half minutes from Scotland striker Chris Maguire and midfielder Joel Ward reignited Pompey's hopes of a miracle relegation escape.

Appleton said: "I was delighted. It was total dominance from minute one to 95."
