    • 90' Reading are really putting the hosts under some pressure. Steve Cotterill is going mad on the touchline as Jimmy Kebe bursts into the box and goes down under a challenge from Greg Halford. Andy D'Urso waves play on.
    • 83' CHANCE!! This game should be over. Liam Lawrence's cross is met by the head of Benjani who glances the ball into the path of Luke Varney. Adam Federici can only look on as the Portsmouth man shoots from eight yards. It flies wide. Bad miss.
    • 77' Benjani Mwaruwari is introduced into the game in replace of Nwankwo Kanu. The returning player is given a big cheer by the home fans at Fratton Park.
    • 72' CHANCE!! Fantastic save from Jamie Ashdown. The visitors don'tdeserve to get back in the game but very nearly do. Noel Hunt receives the ball just yards from goal and has a snap-shot at goal. The keeper does very well to make himself big and clear the ball to safety.
    • 52' GOAL FOR PORTSMOUTH!! Liam Lawrence's corner is met by Dave Kitson eight yards from goal. The former Reading player is allowed to volley into the back of the net. You've got to ask questions about the defending there!!
    • 51' DISALLOWED GOAL FOR READING!! Noel Hunt slots in from close range. The flag goes up straight away though. He was a long way offside, and he knew it.
    • 41' Luke Varney crosses from the right to the feet of David Norris who side-foots wide from six yards. Kanu then has a pop-shot from 20 yards. The shot is hit superbly well but Adam Federici holds well.
    • 35' CHANCE!! Great ball in from Joby McAnuff from the left flank. Jimmy Kebe rises highest at the far post to head towards goal. The ball hits the angle of the woodwork and flies to safety!! Best chance of the game so far.
    • 30' CHANCE!! Hayden Mullins squares to Dave Kitson who has all the time in the world to set himself before shooting inside the penalty area. The striker is low on confidence though, and blazes wide. Steve Cotterill is not a happy man.
    • 27' Hayden Mullins has been booked at Fratton Park. He was penalised for fouling Jimmy Kebe before kicking the ball away. Silly.
    • 19:30 Portsmouth: Ashdown, Ben-Haim, Mokoena, Halford, Pearce, Lawrence, Mullins, Norris, Varney, Kanu, Kitson Subs: Henderson, Ward, Rocha, Williams, Mwaruwari /// Reading: Federici, Griffin, Pearce, Khumalo, Harte, Kebe, Leigertwood, Karacan, McAnuff, Manset, Hunt Subs: McCarthy, Gunnarsson, Tabb, Robson-Kanu, Howard
  • Summary

    • 52' GOAL FOR PORTSMOUTH!! Liam Lawrence's corner is met by Dave Kitson eight yards from goal. The former Reading player is allowed to volley into the back of the net. You've got to ask questions about the defending there!!
