Match Summary Pompey Reserves staged a grand recovery, and finished good winners by 4-2, after being two goals in arrears at Craven Cottage. Delapenha found the corner of the net with a slow ground shot from outside the area just before halftime. After the interval Pompey took charge. Wood levelled the scores with a clever lob, Edwards netted from close in, and Phillips scored the best goal of the game with a grand drive from 20 yards.
