Kevin-Boateng hands Portsmouth FA Cup replay

Listen to article

Would-be Ghanaian Kevin-Prince Boateng saved Portsmouth as his goal against Coventry set up FA Cup third-round replay after a 1-1 draw at Fratton Park.

Coventry went ahead against the run of play after half an hour thanks to a brilliant 20-yard effort from David Bell.

Kevin-Prince Boateng nodded a leveller for the Premier League side in first-half stoppage time, but the troubled 2008 FA Cup winners never looked like finishing off Chris Coleman's resilient side.

Portsmouth went into the clash without influential midfielder Jamie O'Hara, who returned to parent club Tottenham after his loan deal expired.

Asmir Begovic continued to cover for injured goalkeeper David James, who is still struggling with a calf problem, while Nadir Belhadj, Kanu, Hassan Yebda and Aruna Dindane were all on African Cup of Nations duty.
