FT Pompey 1 Charlton 2

Poor cross from Romeo puts paid to a promising Pompey attack

Big miss on the break from Washington to seal it

Fine deliver from the left from Hume but Raggett can’t get a clean connection on his header

Six minutes’ stoppage time

Thompson hits one from just inside the box but MacGillivray is down to his left to gather

Dangerous free-kick from Jacobs, no blue shirt can get on the end of it though

Harness fouled 30 yards out

Brave from MacGillivray and Robertson as both men go for the box and are floored. Both okay to continue
