Portsmouth 1 – 1 Fulham Premier League

Peter Crouch, Redknapp’s £11million signing from Liverpool, scored what looked certain to be the winner just after the hour when he coolly converted Jermain Defoe’s pass after brilliant work by Lassana Diarra.Clint Dempsey’s dramatic 87th-minute equaliser stopped battling Portsmouth waving goodbye to manager Harry Redknapp with a well-earned win at Fratton Park.It would have been tough on Pompey if Fulham had taken the lead in the 40th minute but an eagle-eyed linesman spotted Zoltan Gera was offside when he headed a high through-ball across the area for Andrew Johnson to nod in.

But Danny Murphy was unlucky when he caught a firm drive full on the volley and saw it swerve away from the top corner right at the last second.

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson, with fond memories of Fratton Park where Fulham scored a surprise win to avoid relegation last May, had professed himself happy with his team’s recent performances despite four defeats and a draw in the last five.

And he may have been justified in believing they deserved to be level at the break this time.

But the Defoe-Crouch partnership and Diarra’s non-stop industry looked the major differences between the two sides in the second half and, eventually, was bound to pay dividends.
