Boro pile misery on Sky Blues

9 September 2012

Three goals in 11 second-half minutes helped Portsmouth to their first league win of the season as they triumphed 3-0 at nine-man Crawley.

Substitute Ashley Harris struck in the 74th minute to put Pompey ahead before Luke Rodgers and Izale McLeod completed the away side's victory - ending Town's 100% home form in front of a record 5,058 crowd at the Broadfield Stadium.

Crawley finished the match with just nine players after Josh Simpson and Hope Akpan were both sent off for two bookable offences.

Stevenage continued their unbeaten start to the season as they came from behind to win 2-1 against a Coventry side whose search for a first victory continues.

David McGoldrick put the Sky Blues in front but Robin Shroot equalised in the first half and substitute Marcus Haber sealed the points for the visitors with 20 minutes at the Ricoh Arena remaining after the home side had looked by far the stronger of the two teams in the first half.
