Benjani Mwaruwari claimed a second hat-trick of the season as Portsmouth ended their lengthy home goal-drought with a 3-1 win over basement boys Derby.

Lewin Nyatanga gave Derby the lead, but after six goalless home Premier League games in a row, Zimbabwe forward Benjani ended a barren spell that had lasted 578 minutes in style.

His crashing shot on the turn, quickly followed by a thumping header near the end of the first half set up the treble, which he sealed eight minutes after the break.
