Match Summary Davies’ extra-time goal is ruled out by a dubious offside flag and means the teams will have to slug it out again at neutral Selhurst Park for the right to meet Forest. Mellows gave Pompey a dream start after Marinello set him up for a header, but a are Manley error allowed the equaliser
