Eoin Hand celebrates his goal against Stockport in Pompey’s 1-1 draw at Fratton Park on April 21, 1979.

The veteran Irish defender was both hero and villain in the match. Despite being on his backside, he forced home a low cross for what proved to be his last goal for the Blues.

But Hand’s poor pass then conceded a throw which Stockport equalised from.
