West Ham 0-1 Portsmouth Highlights
Niko Kranjcar’s goal on the hour proved to be enough to secure the points for FA Cup finalists Portsmouth in a low-key game at West Ham. Dean Ashton’s long-range shot pushed behind for a corner right on half-time was a rare moment of serious threat to either goal in the first half. But after the restart the Croatian went one better than Ashton when his turned and netted from just outside the box. West Ham rarely threatened to equalise in a curiously muted match. Portsmouth’s FA Cup exploits seemed to have caught up with them as they began sluggishly, and the little early goalmouth action that there was usually involved West Ham striker Bobby Zamora.
