Portsmouth 1 - 4 Man Utd

Wayne Rooney's hat-trick helped guide Manchester United to victory over bottom-of-the table Portsmouth.
Rooney put the visitors ahead from the spot after he was brought down by Michael Brown only for Kevin-Prince Boateng's penalty to haul Pompey level. 
Ryan Giggs crossed for Rooney to slot in and the Welsh winger was then fouled to allow the England striker to grab his third with a second penalty. 
Giggs added a late free-kick as United kept the pressure on leaders Chelsea. 
The win moved United to within two points of Premier League table-toppers Chelsea, who play Arsenal on Sunday. 
It was Giggs' 100th Premier League goal and capped a performance of vision and verve which has been the trademark of an illustrious career - and this a day ahead of the his 36th birthday.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson had to watch from the stands as he began the first of a two-game touchline ban and, in an even first half, it was far from comfortable viewing for the Scot before his team eased away to victory. 
Portsmouth had new manager Avram Grant in charge and, although he will take encouragement from the display, he knows his side need to start converting some promising play into points. 
The Fratton Park side have bemoaned a lack of fortune this season with seven of 10 Premier League defeats being by the odd goal. 
They certainly did not lack a fight and fervour to their play against United but it was a lack of composure in front of goal against the top-flight champions rather than luck which proved their downfall.

Scunthorpe 1 - 1 Leicester

Martyn Woolford scored with the final kick to earn Scunthorpe a point against promotion-hunting Leicester.
Martyn Waghorn outpaced David Mirfin to latch on to Jack Hobbs' header before firing past Joe Murphy from an acute angle as Leicester opened the scoring. 
But substitute Woolford struck sweetly from the edge of the box as Leicester paid for some poor finishing. 
The visitors should have been out of sight by then while Scunthorpe were indebted to Murphy for some fine saves. 
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 
"I am disappointed because we had chances in the first half to score more goals. 
"But I am not going to have a go at my players because overall this was another good away performance. 
"There was just one ball into the box that we did not deal with - and it has cost us. 
"But we have scored a lot of late goals to win games in recent weeks. It was somebody else's turn to do the same to us." 
Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:
"I thought we deserved it. Obviously we made life difficult for ourselves by giving away a poor goal in the opening few minutes. 
"Leicester are a difficult side to break down and don't concede many goals. 
"But we showed great spirit, we kept going until the end and finally got the goal we deserved. 
"Our home form has generally been good this season, and this was another good result for us against a team up there near the top of the table."
