Pompey snatch point at Stoke

Published Add your comment

A chaotic final 15 minutes saw Portsmouth snatch a 2-2 draw against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium after the hosts had scored two controversial goals.

An incredibly poor game exploded into life when Niko Kranjcar put the visitors ahead in the 75th minute.

However, James Beattie equalised from the spot - when Glen Johnson was harshly ruled to have handballed - before Beattie's header put his side ahead from what looked like an offside position only for Hermann Hreidarsson's deflected injury-time shot to earn the draw.
