‘Glad Charlton went up… see you next season Sunderland’ – Portsmouth fans react to Patrick Bauer’s dramatic Wembley winner
Pompey fans have been having their say on Charlton’s dramatic League One play-off final victory against Sunderland.
And it appears many are taking delight in another heartbreaking day for the Black Cats at Wembley.
Lee Bowyer’s side claimed a 2-1 victory in front of 76,155 fans at the home of football, following Patrick Bauer’s last-gasp winner.
The game looked destined to be heading to penalties, with both teams seemingly inseparable following 120 minutes of football.
That was until Bauer’s intervention with just seconds left on the clock, which handed the Addicks the one remaining promotion place in the Championship and condemning Sunderland to another season in League One.
It was the second time the Black Cats had suffered under the arch, with Pompey claiming Checkatrade Trophy final glory on penalties at Wembley back in March.
The Wearsiders, of course, got their revenge by claiming play-off semi-final success against Kenny Jackett’s side earlier this month as the rivalry between the two clubs intensified.
Yet, it appears Blues fans have had the last laugh – for this season anyway.
While many of the comments posted on our facebook page Portsmouth FC – The News congratulate Charlton on their success, many are revelling in Sunderland’s failure to seal a return to the Championship at the first time of asking.
