Pompey strike back for points

Published Add your comment

Portsmouth proved they are taking the rest of the Barclays Premier League campaign seriously by staging a last-gasp 3-2 comeback against Hull and denying Iain Dowie victory in his first match in charge of Hull.

Avram Grant's men, staring relegation in the face after a nine-point deduction for going into administration, were 2-1 down with three minutes remaining at Fratton Park, only for Jamie O'Hara to equalise and Kanu to score the winner.

Dowie's men had led twice, with Caleb Folan scoring two fortuitous goals in between Tommy Smith's equaliser as Hull appeared on course for a first league win away from home this season.
