And the equaliser came from the resulting corner, as Curtis’ delivery was nodded back by Raggett for OGILVIE to hook into the net. Half Time: Pompey 1 Charlton 1 Cowley made a triple change at the break, as Pigott, Scarlett and Curtis were replaced by Bishop, Reeco Hackett and Michael Jacobs. But Pompey almost immediately found themselves behind again after Albie Morgan had intercepted the ball in the centre circle. He quickly played it to Fraser, who surged into the area and found the bottom corner of the net from a tight angle.
Portsmouth vs Charlton Athletic on 01 Jan 23 - Match CentreThere was little new year cheer to be found at Fratton Park, as Pompey began 2023 with a defeat against Charlton and finished the game with 10 men. Connor Ogilvie had provided some hope on the stroke of half-time by cancelling out Jesurun Rak-Sakyi’s opener. But Scott Fraser restored the Addicks’ lead just after the interval and Marlon Pack was then dismissed for a second bookable offence. The Blues did their best to fight back, only to have their hopes dashed by an unfortunate Owen Dale own-goal.

Both sides looked to get forward once the action started and Michael Morrison fired an ambitious effort over after combining with Curtis on the edge of the box. Curtis then found space to burst forward and hit a deflected shot that forced Ashley Maynard-Brewer to dive to his right and make the save. But it was the visitors who broke the deadlock midway through the first half after stealing possession in the middle of the pitch. George Dobson then combined with Corey Blackett-Taylor to find Rak-Sakyi, who cut onto his left foot and bent home a neat finish. The goal stunned Pompey and they were guilty of some sloppy play in an attempt to get back into the contest.
