Portsmouth 4-2 Birmingham Highlights
A first-half Jermain Defoe brace and goals from Hermann Hreidarsson and Kanu secured Portsmouth victory in a thrilling encounter at Fratton Park.
Defoe opened the scoring from the spot after David Murphy had handled, and soon after he made it 2-0 tucking home from close range. Fabrice Muamba volleyed home Larsson’s corner for 2-1 before Larsson himself curled a stunning free-kick to level. Hreidarsson bundled home for 3-2 before Kanu’s late header secured victory. Pompey manager Harry Redknapp made three changes to the side that beat Manchester United in the FA Cup on Saturday.
