How do you show only the first 'X' amount of records from a related set on the web using filemaker API PHP?

I have 20 records in the related set, however I only want to display the last 5 records. On my filemaker web layout the related set portal is set to view only 5, with scroll bar inactive.

Currently the web outputs all 20 records in the related set.
Using function: 
 
$relatedset = $xxx->getRelatedSet("TABLE");
 
<? foreach ($relatedset as $record) {
 
echo $record->getField("TABLE::name_item");
 
} ?>

you need to count the records for instance:

$count = 0 ;
<? foreach ($relatedset as $record) {
 echo $record->getField("TABLE::name_item");
      $count++ ;
      if ($count == 5) break ;
} ?>
