Match Summary One future ‘Pool boss – Fagan – comes in for another, the injured Paisley. Liddell’s 18-yard header opens, then he sets up Balmer with a lovely flick for a simple finish. Harris nets with an angled shot and Barlow rattles the bar as Pompey rally. Done settles it after good work by Payne.
