The teenage midfielder popped up in the penalty area with 15 minutes to go to tuck away Patrick Agyemang's low cross and secure a point for lowly Pompey against table-toppers Doncaster.

"He was supposed to be wing-back at the time, but somehow he ended up in the penalty box," said Whittingham.

"That's the asset he's got, he can run and get around the pitch.
