Match Report

League One


 

Bradford City    3

 


 

Portsmouth    1

 


Pompey’s unbeaten run finally came to an end as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Bradford at Valley Parade.

They trailed at the break to Nathaniel Knight-Percival’s strike, only for Brett Pitman to thunder home a leveller after the interval.

But the Blues were unable to build on that and some sloppy defending allowed Matty Lund to restore the Bantams’ lead, with Charlie Wyke adding a third goal in stoppage-time.

It was a disappointing evening with play-off rivals Charlton beating Shrewsbury, although Pompey remain a single point outside the top six.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that drew with Plymouth at the weekend.

Connor Ronan replaced Stuart O’Keefe in the centre of midfield, meaning Ben Close continued in the holding role in front of the back four.

Pompey were slow to get going, although a couple of balls into the box caused problems in the opening stages.

Jack Whatmough’s long throws were providing the biggest threat, however, and when one was flicked on by Kal Naismith, Bradford keeper Colin Doyle had to fumble the ball clear.

But it was the hosts who broke the deadlock on 14 minutes after Alex Gilliead had pressured Dion Donohue into conceding a corner.

It was sent into the box by Tony McMahon and nodded on by Matt Kilgallon for Knight-Percival to lash home at the far post.

There were not an abundance of openings at either end of the pitch in truth, although Matt Clarke headed wide following good work from Jamal Lowe to win a corner.

Pitman thought he should have won a penalty after going down in the box under pressure from Kilgallon, only for referee Andy Woolmer to wave away his protests.

It was a bright spell for the Blues and when Ronan let fly from 25 yards, Doyle dived to his right to palm the ball clear.

Another opportunity arrived after Close had been felled on the edge of the ‘D’, with Pitman placing a clever low free-kick through the wall and Doyle doing well to smother the danger.

The Bantams still had their moments, though, and Knight-Percival could not quite guide the ball on the target from another set-piece.

Pompey had one more chance from a corner deep into stoppage-time, but when Whatmough met Donohue’s cross, the home defence scrambled clear.


Half Time

Bradford City 1

Portsmouth 0


There was a bright start to the second half, with Gareth Evans slipping a low pass across the box for Lowe. His close-range finish was deflected wide, although the linesman’s flag was raised for offside.

A couple of corners caused problems at the other end, with one punched clear by Luke McGee, while Clarke got down low to head away the second.

Jackett freshened things up with a double switch on 55 minutes, as Ronan and Evans made way for O’Keefe and Oli Hawkins.

That also led to a slight change in formation, as Pitman dropped in behind Hawkins in a 4-2-3-1 system.

And the Blues almost grabbed a leveller soon after, with Lowe cutting the ball back and Close stabbing a shot just past the upright.

But the equaliser did arrive just past the hour mark and there were no prizes for guessing who scored it.

PITMAN continued his prolific scoring spell by collecting a pass from O’Keefe and expertly bending a 25-yard effort past Doyle’s despairing dive and into the net.

The scores were level for just 10 minutes, however, as Bradford retook the lead following a spell of frantic play when the Blues were unable to get the ball clear.

There was a mix-up at the back between Donohue and Clarke, which allowed substitute Lund to bundle through and slot past a helpless McGee.

Jackett made a final throw of the dice by bringing on Conor Chaplin for Naismith to add to the attack on 75 minutes.

There was a lengthy break in play when Tyrell Robinson went down injured for the hosts and was eventually stretchered off the pitch, receiving warm applause from both sets of fans.

A display of nine additional minutes from the fourth official raised the hopes of the large army of travelling Pompey fans behind the goal.

But they were dashed when McGee parried away a free-kick from McMahon and Wyke followed up to score.

Bradford (4-4-2): Doyle; McMahon (c), Knight-Percival, Kilgallon, Warnock; Gilliead, Guy (Vincelot 75), Dieng, Robinson (Poleon 83); Wyke, Bruenker (Lund 64)

Match Report

League One


 

Plymouth Argyle    0

 


 

Portsmouth    0

 


Pompey’s unbeaten run continued as they collected a point in a tense – if mostly undramatic – clash with play-off rivals Plymouth.

There was plenty of energy on display at a sunny Home Park, but too often a lack of quality in the final third.

Neither goalkeeper was given too much to do, although the Blues almost snatched the win late on, as Lowe had a shot cleared from the line before the crossbar came to Argyle’s rescue.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that secured a thrilling draw at Rochdale the previous week.

Anton Walkes missed out with a hamstring injury, so Stuart O’Keefe made a return to the starting line-up in midfield.

With Matty Kennedy also carrying a knock, spaces opened up on the bench for both Conor Chaplin and Sylvain Deslandes.

There have been plenty of classic contests between the clubs in recent years, but the first half of the latest encounter was one to forget.

Neither side was able to find any attacking fluency, while both were guilty of giving away possession far too easily.

Pompey did showcase some neat passing football at times, but the final ball into the box was often wasted.

There were long-range attempts at either end of the pitch, not that efforts from Graham Carey or Dion Donohue were ever going to test the respective goalkeepers.

The first decent chance fell the Blues’ way on 31 minutes, with Kyle Letheren called into action to deal with Lowe’s angled drive.

He soon turned provider with a low cross towards Brett Pitman that the skipper could only scuff into Letheren’s arms.

The visitors were looking solid at the opposite end and when Matt Clarke lost the ball, Jack Whatmough and Donohue combined to deny Joel Grant.

There was some drama just before the break when Ruben Lameiras went down in the box under pressure from Whatmough.

But referee Dean Whitestone was not impressed and Pompey’s defender berated the tumbling Pilgrim, feeling he had dived.


Half Time

Plymouth Argyle 0

Portsmouth 0


The second half was an immediate improvement on the first, with both sides having an early opportunity to break the deadlock.

First up were Pompey, as Lowe cut inside from the right and sent in a low shot that rippled the side netting.

It was more of an opportunistic effort for the hosts, with Carey’s looping strike not quite able to get down in time.

Nathan Thompson then had to stretch to intercept Oscar Threlkeld’s cross before it could reach the unmarked Carey at the far post.

Argyle were starting to look dangerous and it was Carey who also provided the next threat, although his attempt with the outside of the boot arrowed over.

Their top scorer also tried a curling shot from the edge of the box, with the ball flying comfortably into Luke McGee’s arms.

Jackett made his first switch just before the hour mark, as Connor Ronan replaced O’Keefe in the centre of midfield.

It was a period when Pompey were getting pushed further back, although they weathered the storm and started trying to make an impact at the other end.

There was a chance on 73 minutes when Whatmough met a Gareth Evans’ corner and headed towards goal.

Lowe was stood right in front of Letheren, but the Plymouth keeper did well to deal with that distraction and gather the ball.

It was Lowe who needed to grow an extra couple of inches late on, as he tried to convert Evans’ cross.

And Whatmough was also unable to guide the ball on target when he stooped to meet Donohue’s corner.

The game suddenly came alive in the dying seconds and Pompey had two great opportunities to claim the victory.

Firstly, Lowe ran across the centre of the box and tried to slot the ball into the net, only for Zak Vyner to clear from the line.

Threlkeld then headed a cross against his own bar, as Plymouth held on to ensure the points would be shared.

Richard Hurndall

(Born: 03 Nov 1920)

Died Aged 73
Richard Gibbon Hurndall was an English actor. In 1983, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BBC television series Doctor Who, producer John Nathan-Turner planned a special event, The Five Doctors, a 90-minute episode to feature the four of the five actors who had played the role of the Doctor. William Hartnell, the actor who originated the role, had died in 1975. Hurndall eventually won the role of the First Doctor, playing him as acerbic and temperamental but in some ways wiser than his successors.
