A solitary strike from Kanu was enough to give Portsmouth their first away victory of the year and consign Blackburn to a second defeat in four days.

Harry Redknapp´s side had not savoured a win on the road since a Boxing Day triumph at West Ham, since when they had suffered eight defeats and five draws.

Kanu´s 25th-minute strike was his third goal of the season, adding to Blackburn´s woes after their shock loss to Larissa on Thursday in the first leg of a UEFA Cup first-round tie that had ended a 15 -match unbeaten run.
