ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END
Bloody Charlton, it seems the same every time we play them, go one up, play them off the park and then lose in the last ten minutes, Danny Murphy did the damage at Fratton earlier in the season and Darren Bent and Bryan Hughes did the damage this time.
Pompey were without Lua Lua once again, O’Brien was to replace Stefanovic but injured himself in the warm-up, so Pamarot stepped in, and Hughes replaced the presumably tired Mendes.
Pompey as is more common these days took the game to Charlton and D’Allesandro opened his account with a wonderful left-footed strike to put Pompey on the verge of Premiership safety, but as is so typical of football Charlton scored an undeserved equaliser and then transformed into world-beaters. Darren Bent hit another with time running out and Pompey found three points turn into none. Late headed efforts from Taylor and Karadas never hit the target and Pompey’s fine run was over.
Birmingham and West Brom will no doubt take heart from this defeat, although West Brom could only take a point from Bolton and both the midland outfits sit three points adrift, Birmingham to play Blackburn in their game in hand. Next up is hapless Sunderland at Fratton, defeat is not an option for Pompey now, and hopefully Lua will return along with the talismanic Mendes to snatch the points we need.
Play up Pompey (and Blackburn)
