Portsmouth 0-0 Newcastle Highlights
David James’ point-blank save denied Michael Owen to salvage a point for Portsmouth, after the south-coast side failed to close in on fifth position.
Newcastle had threatened with Geremi’s long-range shot and Mark Viduka’s ten-yard volley needing James to save. Harry Redknapp’s side also came close to a goal with second-half chances from both Glen Johnson and Jermaine Defoe. But it was an great save off the face of James that denied Owen from scoring the best of the days’ few chances. Kevin Keegan had called on his side to avenge their defeat to Portsmouth earlier in the season, and they started with an intensity to suggest they might.
