Pompey 2010 Rewind: Part Four

The year is nearly for turning and we've reached part four of our week-long look back at Pompey's 2010 highlights. This one is all about a Friday night goal feast against one of those teams we love to hate...   Well no one saw that coming. Except perhaps Steve Cotterill.
