Crystal Palace   4 - 1   Portsmouth

Crystal Palace v Portsmouth

Crystal Palace 4-1 Portsmouth

James Vaughan's sparkling hat-trick for Crystal Palace left Portsmouth rooted to the foot of the Championship.

Owen Garvan and Neil Danns set up Vaughan's opener before Dave Kitson levelled after poor Palace defending.

Vaughan raced on to Alex Marrow's pass before scoring with a lobbed shot and Danns nodded Paddy McCarthy's cross into his path for him to make it 3-1.

Finally, Danns was felled by Michael Brown, converting the spot-kick even as Vaughan attempted to take it himself.

The result left Pompey, who remain in administration, still searching for their first win.

Palace are no strangers to administration themselves. But they ended a run of four straight defeats thanks to the efforts of 22-year-old striker Vaughan, a canny loan signing from Everton.

The home side did not have things all their own way, especially when gifting the equaliser following a dreadful defensive mix-up.

Goalkeeper Julian Speroni came charging out to collect a long clearance but Anthony Gardner did not see or hear him coming and nodded the ball over the Argentine, allowing Kitson to fire into an empty net.

Pompey started the second half brightly. David Nugent's strike was ruled out by an offside flag before Hayden Mullins, playing against the club where he started his career, shot too close to Speroni.

But soon afterwards Vaughan was celebrating his second goal and there was no way back for the visitors.
