Portsmouth 7-4 Reading

Sep 30, 2007

Benjani Mwaruwari struck a hat-trick as Pompey won an incredible match.
Two Benjani strikes had the home side cruising before Stephen Hunt struck on the stroke of half-time and David James then gifted Dave Kitson an equaliser.

But Hermann Hreidarsson restored the lead before James atoned for his error by keeping out a Nicky Shorey penalty.

Benjani restored the two-goal lead and Niko Kranjcar, Sean Davis and Sulley Muntari sealed victory, with Shane Long and Shorey responding late on.
