Match Summary Yeovil stun Sunderland today, but Pompey avoid a cup shock of their own against Owls despite trailing to Quigley’s close-range effort. Harris nods home a corner almost at once, then Phillips is put clear to round the keeper. Both teams were in a change strip because of the colour clash.
