Portsmouth 1-0 Sunderland

Feb 24, 2008

Jermain Defoe’s late penalty earned Portsmouth only their fourth home win this season as Sunderland’s miserable away form continued at Fratton Park.

An abysmal first half was typified by poor passing and scrappy play, and a Sulley Muntari shot that flew over was the closest either side came to a goal.

Sunderland were holding their own, though, until Phil Bardsley felled Nico Kranjcar and Defoe scored the penalty.

Grant Leadbitter had Sunderland’s best chances but Pompey comfortably held on.
