Stoke City 2-2 Portsmouth Highlights
Portsmouth earned a dramatic point against Stoke City thanks to an injury-time own goal by Ryan Shawcross.
A drab game came alive after 75 minutes when David Nugent set up Niko Kranjcar to slide Pompey in front.
James Beattie quickly levelled from the spot after Glen Johnson was adjudged to have handled then, seconds later, he put Stoke ahead from close range.
Stoke appeared to have secured victory until Shawcross deflected Hermann Hreidarsson’s cross into his own net.
Given the lack of quality that had been on display for most of the game at the Britannia Stadium, it was an unexpectedly exciting finish – but a draw was the fairest result.
