Five of the best Addicks victories at Fratton Park...
Portsmouth 1 Charlton 2 (March 31st, 1992)
Bob Boulder took down Guy Whittingham in the area to give the home side an early penalty before amending heroically for his error to keep out the spot-kick. Portsmouth took the lead after Scott Minto was unfortunate to divert Warren Aspinall’s cross in to the back of his own net
The Addicks fought back to earn all three points as Carl Leaburn rose above two Portsmouth defenders to head home the equaliser. Just six minutes later, David White bagged the winner after reacting quickly to Simon Webster’s flicked header.
Portsmouth 0 Charlton 2 (December 20th, 1997)
John Robinson grabbed the headlines to help Charlton to a comfortable away victory as he hit a first-time strike in to the bottom corner from a cross to give the Addicks a first-half lead.
In the second half, Robinson helped to create Charlton’s second as his cross was converted by Leaburn to earn the Addicks three points at Fratton Park.
The points proved to be pivotal to earn a play-off place, which the Addicks took advantage of after winning an exhilarating final on penalties following an eight-goal thriller after extra-time.
Portsmouth 1 Charlton 2 (October 4th, 2003)

Murphy was the architect again for Charlton’s winner as Dennis Rommedahl latched on to his through ball and hit a thunderous shot which smashed the underside of the bar before hitting the back of the net.
The victory helped the Addicks to a 13th place finish in the Premier League.
Portsmouth 0 Charlton 1 (January 20th, 2007)
