WINNERS – Super Bowl LIII

Once again, the New England Patriots are champions, grinding to win Super Bowl LIII 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta — and launching Tom Brady and Bill Belichick into a different stratosphere.

They have now won six Super Bowls together, extending their record for the most by a head coach and starting quarterback combination. With the win, the Patriots are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl titles in NFL history.

Brady now has won more Super Bowls than any other player in history, surpassing Pro Football Hall of Famer Charles Haley (five).

Brady was 21-for-35 passing for 262 yards, and most of those yards went to wide receiver Julian Edelman, who is boosting his hall-of-fame resume. Edelman — who was named the game’s MVP — had 10 catches for 141 yards. In addition to already having the second-most receptions in postseason history, he’s now second all time in postseason receiving yards. He trails just the legendary Jerry Rice in both categories.

Edelman, who in his college days was a quarterback at Kent State, was drafted by New England in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL draft. He is the seventh wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP.

League One

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Portsmouth 1    1 Doncaster Rovers

Omar Bogle scored on his Fratton debut as Pompey fought from behind to draw 1-1 with Doncaster on a chilly afternoon on the south coast.

They trailed at the break to Mallik Wilks’ finish, despite controlling the opening stages and recovered from a sloppy period to get a foothold back in the contest.

Bogle struck in the second half to return the Blues to level terms, but the hosts were unable to find the target again.

It ended a three-match losing run in League One, but saw Pompey drop out of the automatic promotion places.

Kenny Jackett made four changes from the side that were narrowly beaten by Luton earlier in the week.

Omar Bogle was promoted to the starting 11, having impressed after coming off the bench at Kenilworth Road.

There were also starts for Ben Close, Dion Donohue and a fit-again Nathan Thompson, with Bryn Morris suffering from an ankle injury.

Anton Walkes and Brett Pitman dropped out of the matchday squad, with Gareth Evans on the bench, meaning Tom Naylor took the captain’s armband.

The hosts started brightly and controlled possession in the opening stages, without managing to test Rovers keeper Marko Marosi.

Thompson was understandably a bit rusty after a spell on the sidelines, however, and was booked for an early foul on Wilks.

Ronan Curtis was sending some dangerous balls into the box from wide on the left, but Doncaster were holding firm.

It looked like Bogle might break the deadlock when Donohue swung a corner towards the far post, but the striker failed to make a clean connection from just a few yards out.

He managed a more powerful header from a Naylor delivery moments later, only for Marosi to cling on to the ball.

The hosts were then dealt a blow on 28 minutes when they were forced to make their first substitution.

Whatmough appeared to hurt his knee and after a brief period of treatment, was replaced by Christian Burgess, although managed to walk off the pitch unaided.

And Doncaster immediately made the most of any uncertainty that change had to the Blues back-line.

Wilks raced on to a long pass from Ben Whiteman, getting past Burgess and slotting a neat finish past Craig MacGillivray.

That left Pompey reeling and they were sloppy for the next 10 minutes, with the visitors looking to take advantage.

But Jackett’s side slowly started to find their footing again and began to look more dangerous as the interval approached.

Donohue whipped a superb corner into a packed box in stoppage-time and Marosi did well to flap the ball away.

A free-kick from Curtis was then not properly dealt with and a long-range attempt from Donohue was not too far off target.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

Doncaster Rovers 1


Donohue appeared to be limping as he came off for break and the midfielder did not emerge for the second half, with James Vaughan coming on for his debut.

It was the visitors who were first to threaten following the restart, though, with Danny Andrew flashing an angled drive narrowly wide.

Pompey were seeing plenty of the ball as they searched for a leveller, but struggling to breach an organised Rovers defence.

But there was a mix-up between Marosi and centre-back Paul Downing that allowed the hosts to level on 54 minutes.

They got in each other’s way when trying to deal with Curtis’ ball in from the left and Vaughan’s pass was deflected into the path of BOGLE, who fired home from close range.

Vaughan then tried his luck with an acrobatic overhead effort from Lee Brown’s cross, although the ball sailed over the bar.

It had been a quiet afternoon for Jamal Lowe, but he saw a shot deflected past the post after showing neat footwork to break into the box.

Doncaster were not merely content with a point, however, and a shot from Alfie May sailed over, while Thompson made a superb recovery challenge to deny Matty Blair.

Former Fratton loanee John Marquis then hit skidding low shot from outside the box that MacGillivray got his fingertips to.

But the Blues immediately had a chance at the other end when Lowe’s fine long pass set Curtis clear, only for Marosi to just about get there first.

And Close then hit a fierce first-time shot from the edge of the area that the Rovers keeper did well to tip over the bar.

Jackett made his final substitution on 77 minutes, as Evans came on for Bogle to add some fresh legs to the forward line.

Headers from Burgess and Curtis could not beat Marosi as the Blues tried their best to find another goal.

And Doncaster almost snatched a winner in stoppage-time when Matt Clarke gave away possession, but MacGillivray came to the rescue by saving May’s curling strike.

Viv Solomon-Otabor

Loan : Birmingham City – Portsmouth


Viv Solomon-Otabor


Pompey have signed winger Viv Solomon-Otabor on loan from Birmingham for the remainder of the season.

The 23-year-old becomes the sixth addition to the Blues squad during the January transfer window following the arrivals of Andy Cannon, Bryn Morris, Omar Bogle, Lloyd Isgrove and James Vaughan.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “He’s an exciting young player who can be used on either side and impressed at this level with Blackpool last season.

“But he’s been a bit frustrated at Birmingham and that’s because of the standard of wingers they have at the club.

“We’re delighted to add a talented and pacy player to our group and he’ll be determined to prove that he can be part of Pompey’s future.”

Solomon-Otabor turned professional with Birmingham in the summer of 2014 and has had spells on loan with Bolton and Blackpool.

He made 47 appearances for the latter last season, with one of his five goals coming in a 3-2 home defeat to Pompey.

James Vaughan

Loan : Wigan Athletic – Portsmouth


James Vaughan


Pompey have signed striker James Vaughan on loan from Wigan for the remainder of the season.

The 30-year-old – who was capped by England up to under-21 level – will wear the number 32 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.

Blues boss Kenny Jackett said: “James is an experienced centre-forward and has been excellent for clubs for a number of years – we’re delighted to bring him here.

“He’ll bring physicality to our front line between now and the end of the season, which is something we’ve lacked at times.”

Vaughan progressed through the ranks at Everton and a goal against Crystal Palace in April 2005 means he still holds the record for being the youngest Premier League scorer.

He appeared for the Toffees in the 2009 FA Cup final and went on to appear for Norwich, Huddersfield, Birmingham and Bury.

A prolific spell for the latter saw him named in the League One Team of the Season and led to a move to Sunderland.

Vaughan signed for Wigan last January and helped them secure promotion to the Championship, where he has netted three times this term.
