Portsmouth 3-1 Sunderland Highlights
Sunderland remain in serious danger of relegation after relinquishing a one-goal lead to lose at Portsmouth.
The visitors took the lead against the run of play when Calum Davenport’s cross was tapped in by Kenwyne Jones.
John Utaka fired in an equaliser a minute later and then forced Phil Bardsley to bundle in an own goal that gave the home side the lead.
Sunderland’s woe was sealed late on when Utaka found substitute Armand Traore and he fired in an angled shot.
