Bristol City   2 - 1   Portsmouth

Highlights - Bristol City 2-1 Portsmouth

Bristol City 2-1 Portsmouth

Bristol City earned a fourth straight win as they quelled a late play-off charge by Portsmouth.

Albert Adomah broke the deadlock when he played a neat one-two with David Clarkson before steering in a shot.

Portsmouth had a penalty appeal waved away when City's Damion Stewart kicked the ball against his own arm.

Greg Halford turned Nicky Maynard's cross into his own net to extend City's lead, while Dave Kitson's stoppage-time goal for Pompey came too late.

The defeat ended a run of six wins on the trot for the visitors, who are now nine points off the play-off places.

Pompey's only consolation was that keeper Jamie Ashdown set a new club record for post-war league minutes without conceding a goal.

He had kept six clean sheets and broke the previous mark set by Peter Mellor during the 1978/79 season when the game was 35 minutes old.

However, five minutes later Adomah struck to end the current record at 636 minutes.

Meanwhile, the Robins registered successive league wins for the first time since February 2009.
