Burnley pay the penalty against Portsmouth

Crisis-hit Portsmouth put their off-field woes behind them to win only their second league away game in the last 16 months.

Crisis-hit Portsmouth put their off-field woes behind them to win only their second league away game in the last 16 months. On Friday, Pompey became the first top-flight club to enter into administration, but the players rolled up their sleeves to add to Burnley's own relegation fears. Although Martin Paterson equalised Frederic Piquionne's opener in the first half, Hassan Yebda grabbed the winner from the spot 15 minutes from time for the visitors - who had already missed a penalty through Jamie O'Hara and ended the game with 10 men when Ricardo Rocha was dismissed late on. Portsmouth stand five points from safety, but that will become 14 when the Premier League board ratify a nine-point deduction that comes with administration - meaning almost certain relegation. Man of the match: Jamie O'Hara (Portsmouth)
