Tottenham 2-0 Portsmouth Highlights
Darren Bent came off the bench to inspire Tottenham to victory, scoring the 100th goal at White Hart Lane this season before setting up another.
Portsmouth’s Sean Davis almost scored against his old club in the first half with a superb chip, while Matt Dawson hit the bar with a vicious volley.
Pascal Chimbonda and Tom Huddlestone also went close with volleyed efforts.
But on 80 minutes, Bent nodded in Dimitar Berbatov’s scuffed shot and then set up Jamie O’Hara for a tap-in.
On Easter weekend it was fitting that almost biblical, freakish hail and snow lashed down as the crowd settled in, anticipating a flood of goals.
And with an average of 3.63 goals in every Spurs game this season, the odds were short on this fixture providing more.
But for all Spurs’ tidy possession in the first half, they could not manage to edge ahead – although they did come very close.
Dawson’s 30th-minute volley was hit such ferocity that if rebounded off the bar back to the edge of the area.
