City 2 Pompey 3

Last updated : 28 February 2006 By Rick Lamb
Ryan Jarvis and Ian Henderson were on the scoresheet but their contributions were not enough to prevent defeat at the hands of Portsmouth.

Collins Mbesuma, Marc Wilson and Giovanni Torres scored the goals that won it for the visitors, with Scottish stopper Paul Gallacher at fault for the second and third goals.

The result was harsh on the home side, who had plenty of chances, but saw 90 minute appearances for the likes of Dickson Etuhu and Ryan Jarvis in preparation for the Championship run-in.
