After a long wait, Portsmouth FC have finally secured promotion back to League One.

The sleeping giants have been trying to get out of the bottom division for several years now and today was the day that they began their ascent back up the Football League.

Portsmouth took about 4,500 fans to Notts County today knowing that if they won and Luton failed to beat Mansfield, they would clinch promotion.

Pompey took a first half lead through a Gareth Evans spot kick and Luton were trailing at half time.

However, the second half provided an early double whammy for Pompey fans as Luton equalised and Notts County drew level at 1-1 through Jorge Grant.

But Luton failed to grab a winner against Mansfield Town and two second half goals from substitute Jamal Lowe earned Portsmouth promotion and some joy after many years of pain.

Fans stormed the pitch at Notts County and here are a selection of the best tweets from fans.
