Match Summary A meaningless end of season game for Pompey but Sunderland are fighting relegation and need a result. Boss Paul Hart goes for an attacking formation after much criticism of his negative tactics to steer Pompey to Premier League safety. Kenwyne Jones gives the Black Cats the lead against the run of play but John Utaka soon equalises and creates a scrambled og from Bardsley and another for sub Traore. The biggest cheer is for Linvoy Primus, who after two years out, makes a cameo farewell as a last minute substitute.
