MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt didnโ€™t look like Portsmouthโ€™s defenders were going to get back and Gabriel Agbonlahor looked like he was going to slide it across goal. โ€œI know Portsmouth had their keeper ready to come on because they thought David James was going to get sent off. โ€œGareth Barry admits himself he handled the ball for the penalty for their second goal and this is obviously the poor concession of a goal for us.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
