Bobby Zamora wasted a great chance for West Ham in the ninth minute when he failed to find a team-mate with a low pull-back after running clear of the visiting defence.

David Nugent was narrowly off target with a right-foot snap-shot in the 24th minute but most of the pressure was at the other end, with David James having to turn Dean Ashton’s fierce 30-yarder around the post just before the break.

Pompey improved after the break and Kranjcar had already just gone close once before he fired in a spectacular low effort from the edge of the box just after the hour.

Pompey replaced Nugent with Kanu late on and there never looked the remotest danger of the Hammers hitting back.
