Pompey battle their way to victory

Published Add your comment

Crisis-hit Portsmouth put their off-field woes behind them to win 2-1 and it was only their second away victory in the Barclays Premier League in the last 16 months.

Pompey yesterday became the first top-flight club to enter into administration, but the players rolled up their sleeves to add to Burnley's own relegation fears.

Although Martin Paterson equalised Frederic Piquionne's opener in the first half, Hassan Yebda grabbed the winner from the spot 15 minutes from time for the visitors who ended the game with 10 men when Ricardo Rocha was dismissed late on.
