Match Summary A frustrating first half ends with Pompey denied a penalty when two Stoke players appear to handle. Froggatt is then upset when the referee gives a free-kick as he gets away from a foul, but he is soon celebrating as his place kick deceives the keeper who can only help it over the line.
