Defoe penalty gives Portsmouth victory

Published Add your comment

Jermain Defoe handed Tony Adams his first win as Portsmouth boss as Pompey came from behind to win 2-1 at Sunderland.

The England striker converted an injury-time penalty after Black Cats substitute El-Hadji Diouf had tripped Glen Johnson.

Algerian midfielder Nadir Belhadj had earlier cancelled out Djibril Cisse's fourth-minute opener six minutes after the break, but the home side wasted a series of opportunities to kill the game off.
