League One


 

Blackpool    2

 


 

Portsmouth    3

 


Pompey brought their three-match losing league run to an end in dramatic fashion at Blackpool.

A dull first half failed to foreshadow what was to come after the break, with five goals arriving in a topsy-turvy 45 minutes.

Twice the Blues took the lead, first through skipper Brett Pitman and then when Ben Close opened his account.

But twice the Seasiders fought back to level, with Viv Solomon-Otabor and an Oliver Hawkins own-goal giving them hope.

It was Pompey who snatched the victory late on, though, when Pitman grabbed his second of the afternoon to complete a breathless encounter.

Kenny Jackett made four changes from the side that exited the FA Cup at Luton the previous week.

Kal Naismith, Gareth Evans, Danny Rose and Kyle Bennett all returned to the side, with Stuart O’Keefe and Nathan Thompson suspended, Matty Kennedy dropping to the bench and Brandon Haunstrup missing out.

Hawkins was once again used as a makeshift centre-half, with Matt Clarke taking on an unfamiliar left-back role.

Both sides emerged from the tunnel with poppy wreaths and had the flower embroidered into their shirts.

A bugler then paid the Last Post, as everyone inside the stadium paid tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Pompey started with plenty of energy and looked to keep the ball moving, but were unable to breach an organised Seasiders defence.

In fact, there were not many clear-cut openings at either end of the pitch during a first half that often failed to get out of third gear.

The best chance for the hosts came when Jay Spearing’s free-kick found Solomon-Otabor in space, only for the winger to smash his shot over the crossbar.

He also had another attempt deflected behind, while a quick Blues break led to Jamal Lowe’s effort being charged down.

Former Fratton loanee Ryan Allsop was enjoying a quiet afternoon between the sticks, although he would have been relieved when Lowe’s cross hit Will Aimson and ricocheted narrowly past the post.

A couple of corners also caused the hosts a few problems, while Close was not too far off target with a dragged shot from 25 yards.

Luke McGee, meanwhile, twice had to come charging from his line to win a race for the ball, although the home support thought he had handled outside his box on the first occasion.


Half Time

(0 – 0)


There had been a distinct lack of excitement before the break, but the temperature rose – at least metaphorically – within seconds of the restart.

A Pompey corner caused havoc in the Seasiders box and Lowe’s shot was blocked, with Pitman unable to get to the loose ball before it was hacked to safety.

The busy Solomon-Otabor then burst down the left, cutting inside and along the edge of the box before hitting a low effort narrowly wide.

But it was the Blues who broke the deadlock on 52 minutes – much to the delight of the large travelling horde.

Close’s attempt took a deflection and although Allsop managed to adjust and parry the ball away, PITMAN was there to mop up.

A quick break from Bennett might have seen them double their advantage, only for Curtis Tilt to recover well and stop Pitman from getting a shot away.

The home support grew audibly frustrated as their side struggled to make any headway in their search for a leveller.

And their annoyance would have grown if Christian Burgess had been able to divert a Naismith corner on target.

But those who remained patient were rewarded on 73 minutes when Nathan Delfouneso combined well with substitute Dolly Menga down the right.

The latter – making his debut – sent in a dangerous low cross and Solomon-Otabor arrived at the far post to turn it home.

That might have deflated the visitors, but – backed by a vociferous following – they managed to retake the lead 10 minutes from time.

Pitman met Evans’ cross and Allsop did brilliantly to keep out his header, but when the ball was not properly cleared, CLOSE was there to fire in his first competitive goal for the club.

The action did not stop there, though, and Blackpool were soon level again, as a cross was sent into the visitors’ box and Hawkins inadvertently headed it into his own net.

But an in an incredible 12-minute spell then swung back in the Blues’ favour when they forged ahead for a third time.

Burgess rose to head a delivery back across the face of goal and PITMAN found space to nod past Allsop.

Blackpool tried their best to fight back once again, but the visitors saw out the closing stages to claim all three points.

Blackpool (4-2-3-1): Allsop; Turton, Aimson, Tilt, Daniel; Ryan (c), Spearing; Solomon-Otabor, Philliskirk (Menga 70), Cooke (Gnanduillet 87); Delfouneso

1925 – Richard Burton

Richard Burton, CBE (born Richard Walter Jenkins Jr.; 10 November 1925 – 5 August 1984) was a Welsh actor who was noted for his mellifluous baritone voice. Burton established himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s, and he gave a memorable performance of Hamlet in 1964. He was called “the natural successor to Olivier” by critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan. An alcoholic, Burton’s failure to live up to those expectations disappointed critics and colleagues and fueled his legend as a great thespian wastrel.

Burton was nominated for an Academy Award seven times, but never won an Oscar. He was a recipient of BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In the mid-1960s, Burton ascended into the ranks of the top box office stars, and by the late 1960s was one of the highest-paid actors in the world, receiving fees of $1 million or more plus a share of the gross receipts. Burton remains closely associated in the public consciousness with his second wife, actress Elizabeth Taylor. The couple’s turbulent relationship was rarely out of the news.

1982 – Jimmy Dickinson

Born: 25 April 1925

James William Dickinson MBE was an English footballer.

Dickinson holds the record for number of league appearances for Portsmouth (764). Only Swindon Town’s John Trollope (770) has made more appearances for a single club.

He signed for Portsmouth as a trainee and made his debut in 1946 against Blackburn Rovers Settling into the side quickly at either wing-half or left-half, he was part of the team that won successive league championships in 1948–49 and 1949–50. His performances earned him a call-up to the England national football team. He went on to win 48 caps for England, making him Portsmouth’s most capped English player of all time. During his record 845 club appearances for Pompey and his 48 England caps he was never once booked or sent off, earning him the nickname Gentleman Jim.

Awarded the MBE in 1964, he played his last match for Pompey a year later, helping Pompey to a 1–1 end-of-season draw at Northampton Town that secured safety from relegation. And when he retired from playing, his association with the club continued. He served Pompey as public relations officer and then secretary before accepting the position of manager in May 1977. Relegation from the Third Division was avoided, but the next year Pompey dropped down a league.

After three heart attacks, Dickinson died aged 57 in 1982. The famous ‘Pompey Chimes’ rang hauntingly around St Mary’s Church in Fratton at a packed memorial service. He is buried in Alton Cemetery.

Checkatrade Trophy


 

Charlton Athletic    0

 


 

Portsmouth    1

 


Pompey progressed to the knockout stages of the Checkatrade Trophy after beating Charlton in their final group match.

Curtis Main netted the only goal in a lethargic contest at The Valley that was watched by very few spectators.

The result ensured that the Blues finished top of Southern Group A and will be at home in the last 32.

Kenny Jackett made eight changes from the side that exited the FA Cup against Luton at the weekend.

Luke McGee, Nathan Thompson and Oliver Hawkins were the only players to keep their place, with the latter two moved to centre-back roles.

Gareth Evans skippered the side at right-back, while Dion Donohue completed the defensive line on the opposite flank.

Danny Rose and Adam May anchored the midfield, with Kal Naismith, Conor Chaplin and Milan Lalkovic making up an attacking trio behind lone frontman Main.

There was also a change made to the substitutes just ahead of kick-off, as Brett Pitman felt a twinge in his knee and was replaced by Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain.

But it was the hosts who got off to the faster start and Anfernee Dijksteel’s cross was turned into the side netting by Karlan Ahearne-Grant at the far post.

Ahmed Kashi then fired a shot straight at McGee, as the Blues felt their way cautiously into the contest.

The Addicks were forced into an early change, however, when Tariqe Fosu hobbled off and Ben Reeves was brought on.

McGee had to come tearing out of box moments later to beat striker Joe Dodoo to a long punt up the pitch.

But Pompey soon found their feet and Naismith picked Hawkins out from a free-kick, with the stand-in defender unable to beat Dillon Phillips from an acute angle.

And they broke the deadlock on 19 minutes, when Lalkovic’s delivery was turned back across goal by Naismith for MAIN to slide home.

He might have had another before the interval, but could not quite make a clean connection to turn Chaplin’s flick on target.

Dodoo was a dangerous presence up front for the hosts, meanwhile, although one shot was comfortable for McGee, while Rose nipped in to prevent him from testing the keeper again.

Charlton’s best chance to level came from one of the opposition players, as Patrick Bauer’s header hit May and was arrowing towards the net until McGee intervened.


Half Time

(0 – 1)


There was a slow start to the second half, with little to warm the hearts of the small number of fans who had braved the wet weather.

Dijksteel did create an opportunity when he stole the ball from Naismith and fed Billy Clarke, whose shot did little to trouble McGee.

Jackett made a double switch just before the hour mark, with Main and Lalkovic making way for Jamal Lowe and Matty Kennedy.

Pompey soon created a couple of openings, with Hawkins having a header deflected behind after meeting Naismith’s free-kick.

Chaplin then saw an effort blocked and when Lowe picked up the loose ball, he was unable to beat Phillips with a shot.

But, in truth, it was pretty turgid stuff, as both sides went about their business without really looking like scoring.

Lowe was showing a bit more urgency, though, and he surged into the box on 75 minutes before watching his fierce drive parried clear by Phillips.

The introduction of former Blues winger Ricky Holmes also saw the hosts pick up the pace as they went in search of a leveller.

But there was to be no late London drama, as Naby Sarr wasted a late chance to level and the visitors saw out the closing stages to secure their progress.

Charlton (4-2-3-1): Phillips; Dijksteel, Bauer (c), Sarr, Mascoll; Kashi, Aribo; Fosu (Reeves 9), Clarke, Ahearne-Grant (Holmes 70); Dodoo (Hackett-Fairchild 59)

Pompey fell at the first hurdle in the Emirates FA Cup after a narrow defeat to high-flying League Two side Luton at Kenilworth Road.

James Collins grabbed the only goal of the tie right at the end of a first half that the hosts just about shaded.

But the Blues were much better after the break and were unfortunate not draw level on a number of occasions before Nathan Thompson’s late dismissal.

Kenny Jackett made two changes from the side that were beaten by Bradford in the league the previous week.

Kyle Bennett and Dion Donohue both dropped to the bench, with Oliver Hawkins and Brandon Haunstrup restored to the starting line-up.

The first half was a niggly affair, with plenty of fouls to break up the play and little in the way of goalmouth action.

Thompson was shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Alan Sheehan, while the reaction of Collins saw him join the defender in the book.

It was the hosts who were first to threaten when Christian Burgess conceded a foul on the left, but Sheehan’s free-kick was just too high for Collins.

Brett Pitman – still wearing a mask to protect his recently broken nose – had a fierce attempt at the other end and Hatters keeper Marek Stech did well to tip it over the bar.

Stuart O’Keefe then fed Ben Close in the box, with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu coming across to make a vital block.

The Luton midfielder was not quite so assured in attack, though, and his tame effort was comfortably held by Luke McGee.

There was a scare when Andrew Shinnie disappeared into the visiting fans after straining to meet a cross on 34 minutes and a sigh of relief when he emerged unscathed.

Hylton then failed to make the most of a decent opportunity by guiding Shinnie’s delivery straight at McGee.

But the hosts did break the deadlock in stoppage-time, as Hylton teed-up Collins to lash a shot into the net.


Half Time

(1 – 0)


Pompey fans were fuming just after the restart when Jamal Lowe went to ground right in front of them and Seb Stockbridge declined to give a penalty.

The referee then rubbed salt into the wound by deciding the winger had dived and brandishing a yellow card.

Luton thought they had doubled their advantage when Hylton tapped home Jack Stacey’s low cross at the far post, but the linesman had his flag raised for offside.

Luke Berry then drew a smart stop from McGee, with the ball looping up into the air and landing on the crossbar.

But the woodwork soon came to the Hatters’ rescue, as Stech managed to divert Matt Clarke’s looping header against the bar.

Pompey were suddenly looking dangerous with every attack and when Lowe met Matty Kennedy’s cut-back, his shot had to be hacked from the line by Sheehan.

Pitman then met a long ball forward by Burgess, forcing Stech into action to make a save at his near post.

That was the last bit of action for the Blues skipper, though, as he and Kennedy made way for Conor Chaplin and Bennett just past the hour mark.

And Luton almost caught their opponents out when Haunstrup was caught dithering, only for Shinnie to fire wide with only McGee to beat.

It was the visitors more eager to get forward, however, and when Stech kept out Close’s drilled effort, Chaplin fired the loose ball over.

Pompey were desperately throwing men forward in search of a leveller, only to come up against solid Hatters resistance.

And their task was made even harder when Thompson was dismissed for a second bookable offence following a foul on Collins down the left.

Luton almost wrapped things up on the break, with Olly Lee not quite able to send his shot over McGee.

But the Blues were not prepared to just sit back and only a fine save from Stech stopped Close from finding the bottom corner to secure a replay.
