Portsmouth   2 - 3   Hull

Portsmouth v Hull

Portsmouth 2-3 Hull

Hull extended their unbeaten away run to eight games and vaulted over Portsmouth as they climbed to 15th in the Championship.

Jimmy Bullard put Hull in front with a 21st-minute penalty but Liam Lawrence levelled matters in the 57th minute, also from the spot.

Two goals in three minutes, from new singing Matt Fryatt and Nick Barmby, gave Hull a decisive lead.

And Greg Halford's strike was no more than a consolation for Pompey.

The Tigers were on the back-foot for much of the game, but Pompey - without Michael Brown and Richard Hughes in midfield - could not capitalise on their possession.

David Nugent and Lawrence both had early chances for the home side and Kanu headed a close-range effort wide.

The game began to turn after Halford brought Hull's Cameron Stewart down in the area and Bullard coolly rifled the ball beyond Ashdown's reach.

Portsmouth continued to keep Hull keeper Brad Guzan busy with shots from Lawrence and Nugent, before the former won and converted a penalty following a trip by Anthony Gerrard.

Norberto Solano's superb pass enabled £1.2m debutant Fryatt to put the Tigers ahead again in the 69th minute and then Barmby - put through by Bullard - gave the visitors an unlikely two-goal lead.

Portsmouth continued to press forward in numbers and shortly after Joel Ward had replaced Kanu up front, midfielder Halford headed a consolation goal home from six-yards.
