Full Match Replay Powered By Utilita: Pompey 3-0 Barnsley

Relive the dramatic final day of the 2000/01 season

2 May 2020

Our latest full match replay powered by Utilita went back to the final day of the 2000/01 season, where survival was the goal.

Pompey needed to win and for other results to go their way to ensure another year in Division One, with Crystal Palace, Huddersfield and Grimsby joining them in the battle against the drop.

A first half strike from Lee Bradbury in front of the Fratton End settled the nerves, with 17-year-old Gary O'Neil and Kevin Harper adding to the scoreline after the break.

An agonising wait followed as fans, players and staff all waited for safety to be confirmed.

But news soon filtered through that Palace had failed to win by more than one goal and the celebrations began.
