Match Summary A lack lustre end to the 2008/09 season which had been one of turmoil for Pompey. Managerial changes and financial woes had put the wobbles under the club but Paul Hart arrived to steer to Premier League safety. With four players out with a virus Rodallega net after a Campbell slip and Pompey can do nothing to level affairs. Paul Hart:sums up "Regarding my future, I'll get home and reflect on the last couple of months and see what happens. It was a very poor performance today over all. It was not very inspiring in the first half, although we improved in the second. It was Sol Campbell and Peter Crouch's last Pompey game.
