Coventry 0-1 Portsmouth: Ronan Curtis strike keeps Pompey unbeaten
Last Updated: 03/10/18 12:12am
A superb strike from Ronan Curtis in first-half stoppage time earned unbeaten Portsmouth a 1-0 win at Coventry.
Kenny Jackett's men should have taken an early lead, but Ben Close side-footed wide from close to Coventry's penalty spot.
The Sky Blues' best chance of the first half fell to Jonson Clarke-Harris, who latched onto a defensive mix-up only for goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray to make a good block one-on-one.
And it was the visitors who went into the break with the advantage courtesy of Curtis's fine right-footed effort which beat Lee Burge low into his left corner.
Gareth Evans flashed a header across the face of the home goal shortly after the restart and Jamal Lowe missed a good chance to make the game safe for Pompey eight minutes from time.
Ben Thompson then forced Burge to parry in the closing stages before Lowe exploited some space to curl narrowly wide.
