Pompey edge towards safety

Published Add your comment

Battling Portsmouth snatched a 1-0 win and a much-needed three points in dramatic fashion against Bolton at Fratton Park.

Midfielder Niko Kranjcar was stretchered off 15 minutes from time with what looked a serious injury and his replacement, Nadir Belhadj, had a hand in the winning goal.

Three minutes after coming on his first touch, an inswinging corner, was helped over the line by Kanu, another substitute.

Bolton were lucky to survive that long and had goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen to thank for a hat-trick of fine saves - all from Glen Johnson in the first half.
