Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp admitted he never thought Benjani Mwaruwari would end up scoring a Barclays Premier League hat-trick.

But the Zimbabwe international was the man who came away with the match ball on a crazy day as Portsmouth ran out 7-4 victors over Reading at Fratton Park.

Redknapp said: "I never thought he would score a lot of goals. He is not a massive scorer but he works and doesn´t give defenders any rest. He makes goals as well and that´s why it was lovely to see him weigh in with three."
