    • 90'+3 Portsmouth have all 11 players behind the ball as time runs out. Heitinga finds Bilyaletdinov..
    • 90'+2 David Moyes races after the ball to set his Everton team away again. The Toffees boss won't accept anything less than 100% - even in these late stages.
    • 90'+1 Great ball in by Heitinga!! Beats Diop, swings the ball in and Saha just can't reach it!
    • 90' There'll be four minutes of added time.
    • 90' Poor ball in. Comes straight off Basinas.
    • 89' Last chance for Everton perhaps. They have a free-kick a ittle way outside the Pompey box.
    • 88' The game is petering out as the stewards line up around the pitch for the expected pitch invasion from the Goodison faithful.
    • 86' We're in the last five minutes! Can either side snatch a winner?
    • 85' Bilyaletdinov comes forward for Everton. Fiinnan is back on but slips as Everton come forward. Drops invitingly for HIBBERT!! Good strike but it was always rising. Still no senior goal for the Everton man!
    • 84' Finnan is off the pitch as play resumes.
    • 84' Sub for Everton. Arteta is off and on comes John Heitinga.
    • 83' OFF THE LINE BY MULLINS!! Think that was Yakubu with the effort and Finnan is in trouble on the deck.
    • 81' Good work by Rocha to take the ball away at the far post. It's another Everton corner!
    • 81' Won back by Everton. Good break, OSMAN!! Takes a deflection over the bar! Corner to Everton.
    • 80' Free-kick to Portsmouth. Boateng guilty of dwelling on the ball but that was a poor challenge by Arteta.
    • 78' Free-kick to Portsmouth. Basinas will take it. Falls to O'Hara. Fires goalwards, strikes a defender and bounces to safety.
    • 76' Change for Pompey. Piquionne is off and it's Angelos Basinas who comes on.
    • 75' Yakubu playfully bounces the ball off Ben haim's head as Portsmouth win a free-kick. There's a 'last day at school' feeling about this match.
    • 74' Vanden Borre latches on to a long ball forward. Piquionne is showed the outside by Jagielka. That's good defending and the danger's cleared.
    • 73' Awful corner by Arteta but it's back with Osman. Poor ball to Saha. O'Hara tries to break. Looks for Piquionne but there's no way through for the Pompey sub.
    • 72' Yakubu tries his luck. Blocked by Ben Haim. Baines though drives the ball in! Cannons off Mokoena for a corner.
    • 70' O'HARA!!! Gets the ball from Piquionne!! Curls the ball beyond Howard - and the post. Just a yard wide!! So close for Pompey!!
    • 69' Finds Pienaar and Diop makes the challenge. Arteta swings the ball back in and Boateng will clear.
    • 69' Boateng thinks he was fouled there. The ref says no and play continues with Yakubu.
    • 68' Pienaar chips the ball in for Bilyaletdinov. Yakubu is in there too but that's good work by Finnan again who shepherds the ball out.
    • 66' Both sides making a change. Anichebe is replaced by Diniyar Bilyaletdinov for Everton while Mokeona makes way for Ben Haim for the visitors.
    • 65' In it comes. Jagielka is blocked off by Yakubu and the chance goes begging.
    • 65' Osman now for Anichebe. The Nigerian's cross is deflected behind by Mullins.
    • 63' And the hosts have a corner. Arteta takes it. Pienaar goes down but the free-kick goes Diop's way for backing in. Free-kick to Portsmouth.
    • 62' Leighton Baines with a dangerous low ball for Everton as Portsmouth continue to fume.
    • 59' Awful decision!! Vanden Borre was three yards out and there was an Everton player on the line!! Pompey should be one up here!!
    • 59' Great move by Portsmouth! Distin with the mistake, Piquionne finds O'Hara!! VANDEN BORRE AT THE FAR POST!!! SCORES!!! NO!! IT'S BEEN RULED OUT FOR OFFSIDE!!
    • 59' But not for long! O'Hara loses it on the halfway line. Eventually falls to YAKUBU!! Comfortable for Ashdown!
    • 58' It's Arteta again for Everton who drives the hosts forward. Tries to clip the ball through to Yakubu. Doesn't come off and Pompey clear.
    • 57' Great block by Finnan as Everton almost thread their way through!
    • 56' Sub for Everton. It's Rodwell who makes way for Yakubu Aiyegbeni. Pienaar seems to have recovered.

    • 54' O'Hara takes it. Utaka turns it towards goal. Thinks he's won a corner but Mr Walton begs to differ! Goal kick to Everton.
    • 53' Finnan again on the ball. Brings in Utaka who looks for Vanden Borre and Portsmouth have their first corner!
    • 52' Diop continues for Portsmouth. Finds Utaka but Finnan is forced backwards. Tries to play it down the line and that'll roll out of play.
    • 51' The South African will have one eye on the World Cup and it actually looks as if he's going to come off!
    • 51' Pienaar is up and is fit to continue to cheers from the Everton faithful.
    • 49' Pienaar tries to feed it in. Portsmouth break with Utaka. looks for Vanden Borre. Poor ball and that's with Howard. And Pienaar has stayed down!
    • 49' Arteta now hits the deck. Diop the culprit. Free-kick to Everton again.
    • 48' Taken quickly. Eventually comes to Steven Pienaar. Wastes that one and Finnan will clear.

    • 46' Early touch for O'Hara. Looks for Piquionne and that's a Portsmouth throw.
    • 46' And it's Everton who get us back underway.
    • - Half time change for Portsmouth. Jamie O'Hara is on for Marc Wilson.
    • 45'+1 Finnan looks for Utaka. Wilson beats Arteta, tries his luck with a half chance. Wide of Howard's goal as ref Peter Walton brings the half to a close. It's Everton 0 Portsmouth 0 at the break!
    • 45'+1 Just one minute of stoppage time to be played.
    • 45' We're in the last minute as Vanden Borre fouls Arteta. Quick free-kick and Rodwell fires wide of Ashdown's post.

    • 43' Offside against Piquionne who challenges Jagielka.
    • 41' Good work by Baines. The ball's now with Anichebe - turns away from Mokoena!! SHOOTS!! Side-netting!! Half of Goodsion saw the net ripple and thought their team was ahead, but it remains 0-0.
    • 41' Anichebe goes down in the box. No foul says the ref as Portsmouth break.
    • 40' In comes the ball and there's Mokoena again to head the ball away for a throw this time.
    • 40' And now Mokoena heads the ball behind for Everton's eighth corner!
    • 39' Piquionne tries a snapshot which Howard will watch drift off target. The Everton keeper has been largely untroubled today so far!
    • 38' Saha tries to beat Finnan, but the Irishman uses all his considerable experience to clear the danger.
    • 38' Arteta is over it and Diop heads it behind for another Everton corner!
    • 37' Pienaar is wrestled to the ground by Boateng. Free-kick to Everton some 20 yards out.
    • 36' Utaka tries a long shot! That's straight down Howard's throat. Worth a pop, but he could have taken the ball further forward before trying his luck.
    • 35' Rodwell again rises to make the header. He's won a number of headers today but he can't direct this one on target.

    • 27' Still Everton come forward.. Good challenge by Hayden Mullins.
    • 26' Good move by Everton down the Portsmouth right. Osman to Pienaar. Now to Saha. Looks for Rodwell and Rocha clears.
    • 24' Piquionne and Boateng link up. Howard comes out, Piquionne cuts inside Jagielka!! And there's Howard to smother the danger!! Good play by Piquionne!! Almost chipped the ball over the Everton stopper for the opener!
    • 24' Portsmouth must also be aware that some of them are playing for their FA Cup final place today!
    • 22' We're at the halfway mark in the first period. It's still deadlock at Goodison Park, but it's Everton who have had the chances.
    • 21' Pompey clear and that's another poor pass by the visitors. Everton are looking determined today and Portsmouth can't afford to just give the ball away like this.
    • 20' That's a poor back pass and Mullins will concede the corner!
    • 19' Wilson out wide now for Piquionne. The ball's clipped forward by Wilson. No one there to benefit and Tim Howard will amble out to claim.
    • 19' Hibbert launches a ball into the box. That's over everyone and drifts out towards the touchline.
    • 18' Piquionne now tries to set Anthony Vanden-Borre away. Poor ball and Everton regain possession.
    • 17' Utaka has to hold the ball up on the halfway line. No support there for the Portsmouth man.
    • 17' Osman comes away and finds Pienaar. Saha looks for Arteta. Too strong for the skiipper and Pompey can break.
    • 16' Piquionne gingerly picks himself up as Everton's Sylvain Distin finds himself under a little bit of pressure.
    • 15' Piquionne goes down after challenging Phil Jagielka. Everton play on.
    • 14' Ricardo Rocha makes a clearance as Arteta tries to come forward.
    • 13' Corner now for Everton. Again Arteta will take it. In it comes - but the flag's gone up. Arteta's delivery curled out before coming back in. Goal kick Portsmouth.
    • 12' UTAKA!!! And that's another well off-target strike from Pompey! Poor effort by the Nigerian.
    • 11' Boateng wins a free-kick after a few step-overs. This is in a reasonable position some six yards left off centre...
    • 10' BOATENG!! Tries his luck from 25 yards and that's way, way off-target! Always going wide that one from the moment it left Boateng's boot.
    • 9' Saha now for Everton. Links up with Tony Hibbert. Victor Anichebe tries to play in Hibbert. Untimely slip by the Everton man sees the chance go begging.
    • 8' Poor free-kick. Fails to beat the first man and it's Osman who makes a simple clearance.
    • 7' And now Portsmouth have some possession. They win a free-kick.
    • 6' Osman comes forward again. Beats Kevin-Prince Boateng. It's Rodwell with the header - straight down into Ashdown's arms!
    • 5' What a start by Everton. Pompey have hardly touched the ball yet!
    • 4' MIKEL ARTETA!! Saved by Ashdown!! That was a sweet one-two in the Portsmouth box and the Spaniard really should have found the net there!!
    • 3' SAHA!!! Just over the top!! Cross in from Osman and there was Saha to rise highest!! So close!!
    • 3' Arteta swings it in to the near post, cleared away, Piquionne doesn't complete the clearance. Throw to Everton.
    • 2' Good start for the hosts as Steven Pienaar finds Leighton Baines. Good interception by Papa Bouba Diop, but Everton have a corner!
    • 1' Early touch for Frederic Piquionne, but that's given away by Marc Wilson. Good move by O'Hara. In comes the cross, but Louis Saha can't reach that one!
    • 1' And it's Portsmouth who get us underway in the final game of the season!
    • - And here come the teams with Mikel Arteta leading out the Toffees!
    • - Some of the Pompey fans have started the party early with a tongue-in-cheek tribute to theiir Merseyside opponents with curly wigs, fake moustaches and inflatable musical instruments. No doubt they'll carry that good mood forward to next week's Wembley date, regardless of today's result.
    • - And to Portsmouth's Steve Finnan who makes his 450th league appearance in England!
    • - And it's congratulations to Everton's Victor Anichebe who makes his 100th appearance for the Toffees.
    • - So Pompey's David James is rested as a precaution, while Aaron Mokoena and Marc Wilson have shrugged off injuries to start. Tal Ben Haim and Jamie O'Hara make the bench.
    • - And our referee today is Peter Walton from Northamptonshire.
    • - And the Portsmouth XI: Ashdown, Finnan, Rocha, Mokoena, Mullins, Vanden Borre, Diop, Wilson, Boateng, Piquionne, Utaka. Subs: O'Brien, Basinas, O'Hara, Smith, Ritchie, Ben-Haim.
    • - And the teams are in! Everton line-up as: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Anichebe, Rodwell, Arteta, Pienaar, Osman, Saha. Subs: Turner, Yobo, Heitinga, Bilyaletdinov, Yakubu, Senderos, Baxter.
    • - But it's Everton who have the advantage this season. A Louis Saha goal back in September proved enough to edge the Merseysiders to a 1-0 win at Fratton Park.
    • - And Pompey won on their last visit to Everton. A 3-0 win in August 2008.
    • - It's honours even according to the history books. The two sides have faced each other 60 times, with 25 wins each and 10 draws.
    • - But the Toffees will prove tough opponents. Everton are unbeaten in 10 matches - with their last defeat coming at White Hart Lane against Spurs in February.
    • - And the south coast side have lost just one of their last five Premier League matches and are aiming for back-to-back wins for the first time in 19 months.
    • - Pompey will look to bid farewell to the top flight on a high - especially with the liitle matter of an FA Cup final against Chelsea to look foward to next week!
    • - Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of this afternoon's clash between Everton and Portsmouth at Goodison Park.
