Portsmouth 2-1 Stoke City Highlights
Jermain Defoe netted the winner and Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch scored with a spectacular overhead kick as Stoke were beaten at Fratton Park.
Crouch acrobatically fired Defoe’s cross into the bottom corner.
Stoke equalised when Rory Delap’s long throw was flicked on by Dave Kitson and Ricardo Fuller headed home.
Defoe rattled the post with a 30-yard drive but then found the net after Stoke’s Seyi Olofinjana allowed him to cut in from the left and shoot.
Stoke’s defeat leaves them in the bottom three with just one win from their opening seven Premier League matches.
This game could have panned out very differently had Kitson not failed to take an early chance to open the scoring.
