Match Summary Pompey Reserves won a dull game through two goals in the last 10 minutes by John Atyeo. Apart from a 20 minute opening blast by Pompey, the game was a drab affair. Portsmouth, who have now played eight games without defeat, included Len Phillips, with Bill Spence making his first appearance since February 11th.
