Portsmouth moved above opponents Peterborough to the top of Sky Bet League One thanks to a 2-1 away win.
Ronan Curtis, on his return from international duty with the Republic of Ireland, set up both of Pompey's second-half goals.
Oliver Hawkins and Jamal Lowe put the visitors in charge of the top-of-the-table clash before Ivan Toney teed up Matt Godden four minutes into stoppage time for a consolation.
The opener came after 62 minutes when winger Curtis, who missed last week's draw with Shrewsbury, battled past Joe Ward down the left and crossed for Hawkins to loop a header into the far corner for his first goal of the season.
The second goal arrived 13 minutes later and followed a poor pass from home centre-back Rhys Bennett which found Curtis. A quick break saw Hawkins clip over a cross from the right which was headed by Curtis to Lowe, who fired in.
Godden's late strike could not prevent Posh's first league defeat of the season, in front of a crowd of more than 10,000 people at London Road.
