Match Summary Pompey’s title hopes look dead after Baggies master the blustery conditions. With a defence well marshalled by Irish cap Vernon, they knock Pompey out of their stride, but it is still a surprise when Ryan’s 30-yard cross shot seals it. Clarke nearly saved it late on, but shaved the bar.
