Match Report

Checkatrade Trophy

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Southend United 0    2 Portsmouth

A youthful Pompey side eased past Southend at Roots Hall to reach the last eight of the Checkatrade Trophy for the first time.

They went ahead through Louis Dennis almost immediately from kick-off and never looked like relinquishing that lead.

Gareth Evans then wrapped things up on the stroke of half-time before a turgid second period that did little to excite the small Essex crowd.

Kenny Jackett made 10 changes from the side that secured a dramatic FA Cup victory at Norwich at the weekend.

Evans – who wore the captain’s armband – was the only man to keep his place, although substitute goalscorer Andre Green also featured.

Dan Smith was handed a debut at right-back, with fellow teenagers Matt Casey and Bradley Lethbridge also given an opportunity to impress.

Christian Burgess, Brandon Haunstrup and David Wheeler added first team experience to a young side, with Dennis, Adam May and Alex Bass making up the starting 11.

The hosts – by contrast – were fielding a much more experienced side and yet found themselves behind with just 93 seconds on the clock.

Wheeler played the ball to Smith on the right and his smart delivery into the box was nodded into the net by DENNIS to open his Blues account.

Pompey looked the more dominant outfit throughout the first half and a free-kick from Evans was unconvincingly punched behind by Ted Smith.

May screwed a shot wide of the post after being teed-up by Lethbridge, who then fired a fierce effort narrowly over the bar.

It looked like the lead would be doubled on 28 minutes when Wheeler raced on to Green’s threaded pass, but the winger slotted inches past the post.

Southend had done little to threaten the visitors’ goal, although a short free-kick routine almost saw them level.

The ball was played to former Fratton triallist Theo Robinson and his low delivery somehow evaded both Harry Bunn and Taylor Moore as they slid in at the far post.

Pompey immediately went up the other end to create an opening of their own, as Burgess met an Evans corner and saw his header cleared from the line by a well-placed Robinson.

But they did score again in stoppage-time when Dennis showed neat footwork to tee-up EVANS, who lashed the ball past a helpless Smith.


Half Time

Southend Uited 0

Portsmouth 2


Jackett made a change at the start of the second half, with academy midfielder Freddie Read replacing Green.

And Evans almost got the half off to the perfect start, curling a free-kick past Smith’s grasp and just wide of the upright.

Leon Maloney then became the second Blues player to make his debut, with the youth team forward coming on for Lethbridge.

It was still the visitors looking more likely to add to the scoring and May fired over when Casey sent Evans’ free-kick back into the centre.

The traffic was not totally heading in one direction, however, and Burgess had to block a Stephen McLaughlin shot following a spell of Shrimpers pressure.

But, in truth, neither side was doing much to raise the tempo as the minutes ticked down with very little in the way of noteworthy incidents.

Southend did win a series of corners towards the end of the contest, but it was proving to be a comfortable evening for Bass between sticks

A long-range volley from Read was not too far off target, but Pompey had already done comfortably enough to ensure their name would be in Thursday evening’s quarter-final draw.

Match Report

FA Cup 3rd Round

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Norwich City 0    1 Portsmouth

Andre Green came off the bench to net a stoppage-time winner as Pompey triumphed at Norwich to reach the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

It looked like a replay was on the cards, despite the high-flying Championship hosts playing most of the game with just 10 men.

Captain Grant Hanley received an early red card, although both sides had chances to settle what was an absorbing contest.

But it was the Blues who came out on top, with Green finding the net right at the death to spark scenes of jubilation from the 2,493 travelling fans.

Kenny Jackett made two changes from the side that beat AFC Wimbledon in the league on New Year’s Day.

Dion Donohue replaced Brandon Haunstrup to make his first appearance since late October, while Oli Hawkins made way for Brett Pitman up front.

It was a more unfamiliar line-up for the hosts, who made eight changes to rest several key men for their quest to reach the Premier League.

The game took a while to get going, although Tom Naylor would have breathed a sigh of relief when Jordan Rhodes fouled Jack Whatmough while trying to race on to an under-hit back-pass.

But the hosts were dealt a massive blow on 15 minutes, when their skipper was dismissed by referee Darren Bond.

Hanley sent Ronan Curtis clattering to the turf and, with no other defender behind him, the official had no choice but to brandish a red card.

And the Blues should have immediately made the most of their numerical advantage, with Pitman heading Jamal Lowe’s cross over from just a few yards out.

Christoph Zimmerman then went close at the other end, hitting a long-range piledriver that bent narrowly past the upright.

A curling free-kick from Ben Marshall was comfortable for Craig MacGillivray, while Whatmough made a key challenge to deny Rhodes.

But the flow of the game was being disrupted by a series of niggly fouls from both teams, while Donohue had to be cleaned up after receiving a nasty cut to the head.

There was not an abundance of clear-cut opportunities, but the Canaries went close from a Kenny McLean free-kick.

The ball ricocheted into the path of Rhodes, with Matt Clarke using his face to block the striker’s shot and Ben Godfrey’s follow-up going straight at MacGillivray.

Pompey soon had a chance at the other end when Donohue’s delivery was laid off by Curtis, but a fierce effort from Gareth Evans was blocked before it could test Michael McGovern.


Half Time

Norwich City 0

Portsmouth 0


It was the visitors who made the brighter start to the second half and they created a number of openings just after the restart.

Naylor’s skidding effort was held by McGovern, while Pitman had a shot on the half-volley that looped over.

Donohue then sent in a dangerous cross from the left and Curtis glanced his header just past the post.

But Norwich fought back into the contest and Todd Cantwell drilled a shot narrowly past the post from 20 yards.

It looked like Dennis Srbeny was then going to slot the hosts into the lead, only for Anton Walkes to make a superb challenge just as he was shaping to shoot.

The match was finely poised, with the Canaries starting to see more of the ball and their opponents posing a threat on the break.

Jackett decided the time was right to make a change on 67 minutes, with Green coming on for Evans.

He made a lively start, although after skipping past one challenge in the Canaries area, could not repeat the trick.

Both sides looked capable of settling the tie and it was Pompey who almost broke the deadlock on 77 minutes.

McGovern failed to hold a drilled effort from Donohue, with Zimmermann just about getting there in front of Pitman to clear the danger.

An attempt from Lowe also had to be clawed behind by the diving keeper, as the Blues started to apply pressure.

MacGillivray then flung himself to the right at the other end, in order to keep out a diving header from Cantwell.

A replay might not have been what either side was looking for, but it looked on the cards until right at the death.

Donohue broke quickly and hit a superb cross-field pass for GREEN, who did not take the best first touch, but recovered well to hit a shot in off the post.

It left the hosts stunned and there was not enough time remaining for them to find an equaliser, with Pompey booking their place in Monday evening’s fourth round draw.

Plot

In an English cottage, four young people from London move in together, seeking to challenge social conventions and their own tolerances by engaging in scheduled partner-swapping. The durability of their new living arrangements is tested by the arrival of an outsider who fails to get in tune with the foursome's radical spirit.

Summary

This film fails for a number of reasons. It doesn't work as a drama as you have no real backstory to the characters or why they are where they are and it doesn't work as an erotic movie as although there is nudity there is not enough nor is it that erotic.
