Match Summary Pompey make light of driving rain. Froggatt opens from close in, then Harris crosses for Reid to make it two from 12 yards. The winger makes sure of the win, skipping round Hudgell. Froggatt limped off after a heavy tackle, while Sunderland’s Hall lost the toss for the first time in nine.
