Match Summary Stoke are out of luck as Pompey retain an unbeaten run at all levels (first, reserves and youth). Harris poaches the vital goal, firing home after Herod fails to hold a greasy ball – soaked following a pre-match shower. Baker misses an open goal late on, and sees Rookes head off the line.
