Comments:

League position: 5th Unused substitutes: Jamie Ashdown, Matthew Taylor, Noe Pamaraot and Pedro Mendes As an unused sub, Matthew Taylor was shown a yellow card for dissent after 66 minutes following the award of a penalty to Reading. Sulley Ali Muntari's penalty made the score 7-3 before Sol Campbell's own goal completed the scoring. The FA Premier League's Dubious Goals Committee ruled on the following: - Portsmouth's sixth goal against Reading on 29th September was in fact an own goal (Ivar Ingimarsson) and has therefore not been credited to Sean Davis.
