Pompey delay drop

Published Add your comment

Ten-man Portsmouth earned a stay of execution from Premier League relegation, after they held Blackburn 0-0 at Fratton Park.

Rovers enjoyed by far the better chances as David Dunn and Christopher Samba both hit the post in the first half.

But Pompey's depleted squad suffered another hit when they lost Anthony Vanden Borre for their FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham, after he was sent off after receiving his second booking on the hour.
