Fratton's fab five Pompey goals
CONOR CHAPLIN gave us a Fratton Park goal to remember against Wycombe on Saturday.
That joins an illustrious list of strikes to remember on home soil.
JORDAN CROSS remembers five of the very best.
Pompey 4 Bristol Rovers 1
December 26, 1992
A goal etched in Fratton Park folklore as Guy Whittingham and Paul Walsh carved through Bristol Rovers with their one-twos before Corporal Punishment curled home on his right foot to complete his hat-trick.
Whittingham ended up with four goals that day.
Pompey 2 Manchester City 1
March 11, 2006
THAT goal. Pompey headed into stoppage-time with their Premier League place looking increasingly precarious. Pedro Mendes cracked a sublime hit past David James in front of the Fratton End and sparked the Great Escape.
Pompey 2 Everton 0
December 09, 2006
His spectacular hit at Sunderland was something special but Matt Taylor, left, rated this effort as better.
A deflection off Kanu and the ball sat up for Taylor to smash the purest of 45-yard half-volleys past keeper Tim Howard.
Pompey 2 Hull 2
November 22, 2008
The ball dropped to Glen Johnson on his weaker left foot – yet that didn’t stop the right-back letting rip with a thunderous dipping volley from 30 yards in this Premier League encounter.
The effort went on to be named Match of the Day’s goal of the season.
Pompey 1 Bournemouth 2
January 30, 2016
Pompey channelled their inner Barcelona with this jaw-dropping goal of passing beauty in the Cup.
Bournemouth have a reputation for playing the beautiful game but 48 passes culminated in Roberts putting his side in front against the Premier League outfit.
