Match Summary A good game of ups and downs, with Portsmouth up in the early stages, then down by 3-1. The team never gave up, and slightly better moves put them on a par. As both teams tried for a winner Reid, Elder, and Brown all had shots blocked from about five yards in a packed Charlton goalmouth.
