RATINGS: Posh hold on to cement automatic promotion place after second half Pompey onsluaght
Posh were made to work hard in the second half to come away with the three points in a crucial promotion clash against newly-managerless Portsmouth tonight (March 16).
Portsmouth lined up with a very defensive wingback formation in the first half and asked Posh to break them down. Burrows produced the moment of magic needed with a cross from a corner which MacGillvray palmed onto his own defender’s back.
In the second half, Pompey came forward but Posh survived the aerial assault.
RATINGS KEY: 10-Brilliant, 9-Outstanding, 8-Very good, 7-Good, 6-Okay, 5-Poor, 4-Very poor.
