MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Accrington Stanley 1    1 Portsmouth

Pompey maintained their unbeaten record on the road, but failed to hold on to their lead in a 1-1 draw at Accrington.

The visitors had several chances to score before the break, but would have been happy to go in level after Craig MacGillivray conceded and saved a Billy Kee penalty.

Oli Hawkins finally broke the deadlock in the second half, only for Michael Ihiekwe to level seconds later.

Kenny Jackett made four changes from the side that drew with Burton earlier in the week.

Gareth Evans returned to skipper the team in place of the injured Dion Donohue, with Ben Close replacing the suspended Tom Naylor.

There were also a couple of alterations at the back, with Anton Walkes and Jack Whatmough dropping to the bench to make way for Nathan Thompson and Christian Burgess.

Pompey dominated the opening stages and created several decent opportunities as they tried to break the deadlock.

Jamal Lowe was a particular thorn in Stanley’s side, but could not beat keeper Connor Ripley after showcasing some tricky footwork in the box.

The resulting corner from Evans found its way to Ben Thompson and his acrobatic effort flew narrowly wide.

It was Evans who was next to try his luck and a fierce effort on the volley from outside the box was palmed wide by the busy Ripley.

There was not much happening at the other end, although a weak effort from Kee was comfortably held by MacGillivray.

But it was soon the Blues back on the attack and Ronan Curtis’ long-range strike flashed past the post.

It was pretty much one-way traffic and Lowe’s first-time shot from the edge of the box was again kept out by Ripley.

The keeper was certainly earning his wage and saved an angled drive from Curtis as the visitors continued to apply pressure.

And the Irish forward went even closer when he rose at the far post to meet Lowe’s cross, only to see his header cannon back off the post.

But Accrington came into the game more as the half progressed and should have broken the deadlock on 33 minutes.

MacGillivray failed to hold on to a corner and in his eagerness to recover the ball, brought down Kee inside the box.

Referee Stephen Martin did not need much convincing that a foul had been committed, immediately pointing to the spot.

But MacGillivray quickly redeemed himself, flinging himself to the right to palm Kee’s penalty to safety.

And the keeper came to the rescue again before the break, denying the same player from converting a corner at the far post.


Half Time

Accrington Stanley 0

Portsmouth 0


The second half started with Nathan Thompson earning a yellow card from Martin for a foul on Offrande Zanzala.

It was the right-back’s fifth League One booking of the season, meaning he will miss next Saturday’s trip to Bradford.

Pompey needed some time to find their feet following the restart, but almost took the lead just before the hour mark.

Lowe won a corner and when it was only partially cleared, a volleyed attempt from Curtis cannoned off the crossbar.

Pompey did forge ahead moments later, however, when Evans whipped a free-kick into the box and HAWKINS stuck out a boot to force the ball home.

But the lead was short-lived and Stanley levelled from a set-piece of their own, as Ihiekwe rose to convert Sean McConville’s delivery.

Those goals aside, however, the second half had not been as incident-packed as the first, with both sides lacking a quality final ball.

Brett Pitman replaced Hawkins for the final 10 minutes in an attempt to inject some fresh attacking impetus.

But neither side particularly looked like scoring in a drab conclusion to a contest that had promised so much more.

Stanley substitute Connor Hall did draw a save from MacGillivray in stoppage-time, but the hosts could not capitalise on the loose ball and the game finished all square.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Portsmouth 2    2 Burton Albion

Pompey were forced to settle for a draw in an often breathless encounter with Burton at Fratton Park.

They looked stronger before the break and appeared comfortable after Oli Hawkins’ header had secured an interval advantage.

But Devante Cole and Jake Hesketh both netted at the start of the second half to leave the League One leaders stunned.

Matt Clarke soon nodded in an equaliser in a hectic period, although neither side was able to score again and snatch all three points.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that had beaten Fleetwood on home soil a few days earlier.

With Nathan Thompson’s wife having just given birth to a baby boy, Anton Walkes replaced him at right-back.

David Wheeler was named among the substitutes after recovering from an ankle problem that has kept him sidelined for the past three games.

A couple of Lee Brown crosses showed Pompey’s mentality in the opening stages, as they looked to get at their visitors.

Goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov was then called into action for the first time, getting his fingertips to a rasping Ronan Curtis drive.

The hosts were on top and when Tom Naylor stole possession in the middle of the pitch, the midfielder picked out Ben Thompson.

His fierce drive was kept out by Evtimov and the stopper dived on the loose ball before Jamal Lowe could capitalise.

But Naylor collected a booking soon after following a late challenge on Stephen Quinn. It was his fifth league caution of the season, earning a one-match suspension.

It was a fairly quiet time for Craig MacGillivray in the Blues goal, although he came off his line to deny Jamie Allen.

Will Miller then wasted a decent opportunity by hitting a tame effort straight at the keeper after being picked out by Ben Fox.

And there was a blow for Pompey when Dion Donohue limped off with an injury, with Gareth Evans on to replace him.

It was generally proving to be a positive evening for the hosts, though, with Jack Whatmough and Evans both having half-chances.

And the Blues broke the deadlock on 36 minutes when Thompson swung in a fine cross from the right and HAWKINS charged in to head home from close range.

The closest that Albion came to levelling before the break was a shot from Kyle McFadzean, although that went out for a throw.

There was still time for another Pompey opportunity, however, and Evtimov did well to stop Lowe’s cross reaching Curtis.


Half Time

Portsmouth 1

Burton Albion 0


But the Brewers started the second half strongly and Naylor had to slide bravely in to block Hesketh’s attempt.

The loose ball fell for Liam Boyce, however, and his shot was saved low to his left by a full-stretch MacGillivray.

An equaliser did arrive moments later, though, when Allen found Cole, who – having been brought on at the break – sent a neat finish nestling in the bottom corner.

And the Blues were left stunned on 52 minutes when Hesketh wriggled his way past a couple of challenges and hit a thunderous shot into the roof of the net.

The Fratton faithful raised the decibels to try to roar their side back into action and it seemed to have an effect.

Evans saw an effort blocked a few yards from the line, while Evtimov did well to keep out Lowe’s angled strike.

But the hosts were back on level terms on 57 minutes, with CLARKE rising highest in the box to convert an Evans corner.

Brett Pitman replaced Hawkins just past the hour mark, as Jackett opted to freshen up his forward line.

But it was Brown who had a chance to score when Lowe was brought down by Reece Hutchinson 20 yards out.

The left-back managed to send his free-kick through the wall, only for it to fly safely into the arms of Evtimov.

Pitman was then unable to make a connection with an attempted over-head kick after Whatmough’s long throw had been flicked on by Clarke.

A shot from Quinn at the other end lacked pace, but took a deflection and almost wrong-footed MacGillivray.

Both sides looked capable of scoring again, but it was Burton who almost grabbed a late winner following a quick break.

Cole tried to pick out an unmarked Lucas Akins in the box, with Naylor just about managing to intercept and MacGillivray diving on the loose ball.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Portsmouth 1    0 Fleetwood Town

Oli Hawkins celebrated a half-century of appearances by netting the only goal to seal victory for Pompey against Fleetwood.

Neither side looked like scoring in an opening 45 minutes at Fratton Park that was totally devoid of any excitement.

But it was the Blues who dominated after the break and Hawkins headed home to ensure the hosts remained top of the League One standings.

And the Cod Army’s hopes of finding a leveller were dashed when Nathan Sheron was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that won at AFC Wimbledon the previous week.

Ronan Curtis came straight back into the team after returning from Republic of Ireland international duty.

Gareth Evans dropped to the bench, as Pompey switched to a 4-4-2 system, with Tom Naylor handed the captain’s armband.

The first half was a soporific affair, with neither keeper called into action to make even the most regulation of saves.

It was Naylor who probably had the best chance on six minutes when Ben Thompson’s free-kick was nodded down by Hawkins, but the midfielder hooked over the bar.

An Ashley Eastham clearance then ricocheted off Curtis, only to land safely for Craig Morgan to hack clear.

And when Dion Donohue’s deep free-kick was only partially dealt with, Ben Thompson hit a fierce effort narrowly over.

Hawkins was proving an aerial nuisance, but after doing well to win the ball, he sliced his shot wide of the post.

Fleetwood were not helping the pace of the game by taking an age over every set-piece and referee Lee Swabey lost patience with Lewie Coyle’s long-winded throw, brandishing a yellow card.

The fourth official was also being kept busy on the touchline, with visiting manager Joey Barton keen to argue every decision.

That was about as exciting as it got, however, and Hawkins blazed wide after doing well to steal possession from Morgan.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

Fleetwood Town 0


There was a tactical switch at the start of the second half, with Pompey moving back to their usual 4-2-3-1 system.

It saw Ben Thompson move into the attacking hole behind Hawkins, as Donohue dropped into a deeper midfield role.

And it almost immediately paid dividends, with HAWKINS – in the 50th minute and on his 50th Blues appearance – breaking the deadlock.

The striker ran in to head home from close range after Donohue’s corner had been nodded towards goal by Naylor.

He might have had a second soon after, as Alex Cairns’ clearance ricocheted off his back and narrowly past the post.

Hawkins was also not too far off target after running in at the far post to meet a cross from Lee Brown.

A round of applause broke out on 58 minutes to pay tribute to Craig Bryden – aka the ‘Pompey Pirate’ – who sadly passed away earlier in the week.

The action on the pitch was certainly more vibrant than before the break, although it was still fairly quiet for both keepers.

Fleetwood’s quest for an equaliser saw Naylor head clear a free-kick, while Paddy Madden could not divert Ash Hunter’s cross on target.

There was a chance at the other end, with Curtis not quite able to thread a pass through to Hawkins, who was waiting in acres of space inside the box.

Pompey were dominating, but unable to put the game to bed and Curtis curled wide after a Donohue corner led to some pinball in the box.

And Fleetwood’s task was made a lot harder when Sheron – earlier booked for a foul on Curtis – tugged back the same player and received his marching orders on 84 minutes.

The Blues forward took the free-kick, but Matt Clarke could not adjust his body enough to divert a header on target.

Six minutes of stoppage-time gave the visitors hope of finding a leveller, but Pompey held on to ensure a return to Fratton form.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

AFC Wimbledon 1    2 Portsmouth

Tom Naylor and Gareth Evans were on target as Pompey secured a deserved victory at AFC Wimbledon.

But they were forced to endure a nervy conclusion after a fine James Hanson strike reduced the Dons’ deficit.

Up until that point it had been a dominant afternoon for the visitors, with Naylor’s header opening his account for the club.

Evans doubled the advantage before the break and the Blues had several more chances to extend the lead further.

But Hanson pulled one back for Wimbledon and a tense finale ensued before the final whistle was blown.

Kenny Jackett made three changes from the side that were beaten by Gillingham in the last league fixture.

Dion Donohue was rewarded for his winning Checkatrade Trophy goal earlier in the week, while there were also returns for Ben Thompson in midfield and Oli Hawkins up front.

Brett Pitman and Ben Close both dropped to the bench, with Ronan Curtis absent on international duty.

There were a couple of familiar faces on the Wimbledon flanks, with former Pompey players Jake Jervis and Andy Barcham both starting.

The first half was a breathless affair, with the visitors in almost total control from first whistle until last.

AFC Wimbledon were indebted to Joe McDonnell in the opening stages, with the keeper saving Naylor’s header with his legs following a corner from Donohue.

He then raced off his line to deny Evans after the stand-in skipper had raced on to a great pass from Nathan Thompson.

It was an unseasonably warm afternoon in south-west London, but conditions proved difficult when the breeze picked up.

Craig MacGillivray was relatively untroubled, although he was called into action to keep out a deflected Tom Soares free-kick.

A rare spell of prolonged Dons pressure then ended with the stopper keeping out a low attempt from Jervis.

But it was Pompey on top and they deservedly broke the deadlock on 24 minutes – much to the delight of the lucky ballot winners packed into the away end.

Another fine corner from Donohue was met by NAYLOR, whose header deflected off Liam Trotter and managed to cross the line.

They kept pouring forward and Hawkins nodded narrowly wide from a Lee Brown cross, while Deji Oshilaja did well to dispossess the lively Jamal Lowe in the box.

But the advantage was doubled on 31 minutes, as Brown sent a low delivery across the face of goal and EVANS raced in at the far post to arrow a shot home.

The wind almost caught out MacGillivray at the other end, with Jervis’ cross catching a gust and landing on the roof of the net.

Still the Blues kept up their attacking intent, however, and a long-range effort from Naylor was just about pushed wide by McDonnell.

A vital block from Oshilaja then came to Wimbledon’s rescue after Lowe had bamboozled the back-line and picked out Hawkins.

The only down side for the visitors was a couple of bookings they collected from referee Lee Probert just before the interval.

Donohue was penalised for an alleged dive in the box, with Jack Whatmough booked for a late challenge on Joe Pigott.


Half Time

AFC Wimbledon 0

Portsmouth 2


Such had been Pompey’s dominance, that opposition manager Neal Ardley made all three of his substitutions at the break.

Tennai Watson, Barcham and Pigott were all hauled off, with Will Nightingale, Anthony Hartigan and Hanson replacing them.

The three newcomers were out there on their own for a while, however, with the rest of the home side taking an age to take to the pitch.

It was the Blues that were first to threaten after Soares had been booked for a swipe at Nathan Thompson.

Whatmough’s free-kick was nodded on by Hawkins for Lowe, who tried a cheeky back-heel that McDonnell got down to keep out.

The traffic was continuing to head in the same direction and a couple of corners almost led to more goals.

When the first of them was only partially cleared, a thunderbolt from Donohue flew narrowly off target.

He took the second himself and it was met by the head of Matt Clarke, with a well-placed Jervis clearing from the line.

But Wimbledon suddenly found themselves back in the game with a goal of their own just past the hour mark.

It was slightly unfortunate for the visitors, with Evans mis-cueing his clearance and Hanson capitalising with a fine finish that curled around MacGillivray’s dive and into the net.

The Dons might have had another soon after, but Jervis could only head the ball straight to the keeper after meeting Oshilaja’s cross.

A corner from Evans was nodded inches wide by Clarke, as Pompey tried to restore their grip on the contest.

Jackett made his first switch on 74 minutes, with Donohue the man to make way for Ben Close in midfield.

Wimbledon were playing with much more belief by this point, though, with Whatmough and Clarke both making blocks to deny Kwesi Appiah.

A second Blues change occurred soon after, with Hawkins being replaced by Pitman in the lone striking role.

The visitors were more content to use up time as the seconds ticked down, before the Pompey fans could finally celebrate another victory.

Checkatrade Trophy

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Crawley Town 0    1 Portsmouth

Dion Donohue netted his first Pompey goal to secure victory at Crawley in an uneventful Checkatrade Trophy contest at Broadfield Stadium.

But the result was enough to ensure that the Blues have reached the knockout stages with a group game to spare.

There was not a lot for either goalkeeper to do on a mild evening in Sussex and Donohue’s effort was comfortably enough to secure all three points.

Joe Mason could even afford to miss a late penalty in a game that will not live long in the memory of anyone present – bar Donohue, perhaps.

Kenny Jackett made nine changes from the side that finally suffered a league defeat to Gillingham at the weekend.

Gareth Evans – who wore the captain’s armband – and Ben Close were the only players to keep their places.

There were debuts for Louis Dennis and 16-year-old academy full-back Haji Mnoga, while a fit-again Donohue made his first appearance of the season.

Meanwhile, another member of Pompey’s youth set-up, midfielder Freddie Read, was an unused substitute.

Both sides took a while to grow into the game, with clear-cut chances at a premium at both ends throughout the first half.

A shot from Tarryn Allarakhia flew straight at Luke McGee, while the keeper also dealt with David Sesay’s deflected drive.

Then when a George Francomb delivery was only partially cleared, Panutche Camara and Dannie Bulman both had efforts blocked in quick succession.

There were a few crosses for Crawley to deal with at the other end of the pitch, but nothing that the visitors could capitalise on

Dennis did try his luck from the edge of the box, although the ball flew harmlessly wide of Yusuf Mersin’s post.

There was a scare when Evans lost possession inside his own area, although the skipper did well to win it back.

And Pompey went straight up the other end to break the deadlock, with Mason feeding DONOHUE, who cut in from the left and arrowed home a neat finish.


Half Time

Crawley Town 0

Portsmouth 0


Jackett replaced Evans with Matt Clarke at the start of the second half, as he matched the hosts by playing with three at the back.

But the Reds should have been level soon after the restart, with Sesay doing the hard work by beating Donohue down the right.

He squared for an unmarked Brian Galach, but the striker somehow side-footed his shot wide from 12 yards.

Close was not far away from making him pay for his profligacy, with a trickier attempt that flew narrowly over.

It was still not proving to be a game full of excitement, however, with Pompey content to play some patient passing football.

Josh Doherty had an opening for Crawley when he sent the ball into the danger zone and it evaded everyone to roll inches past the post.

Jackett made his final two changes just past the hour mark, as Mnoga and Donohue were withdrawn for Ben Thompson and Tom Naylor, with the latter slotting into defence.

The visitors tried to make sure of the victory and Close’s shot was gathered by Mersin after Anton Walkes had headed down Clarke’s free-kick.

Thompson’s low centre for Mason was just about intercepted, while Clarke nodded a corner wide as the match wound down.

Allarakhia sent a 25-yard thunderbolt fizzing narrowly wide, as the Reds tried their best to force a draw.

But Mason should really have wrapped things up for Pompey from 12 yards after Walkes had been tripped in the box by Mark Randall.

Referee Tim Robinson pointed straight to the spot, but the striker blazed his penalty high over the bar.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Portsmouth 0    2 Gillingham

Pompey’s unbeaten run finally came to an end at the 12th time of asking, as they lost to Gillingham at a sodden Fratton Park.

It was a disappointing display from the hosts, although they remain top of the League One table with Peterborough also suffering a home defeat.

A wonder goal from Tom Eaves opened the scoring, while Alex Lacey doubled the advantage in first half stoppage-time.

The Blues looked much brighter after the break, but despite their best efforts, were unable to find a breakthrough.

Kenny Jackett named an unchanged side for the third game in a row following successive wins on the road at Rochdale and Coventry.

The wet and windy conditions were undoubtedly making life tough for both sides in the opening stages.

It was certainly not conducive to any kind of free-flowing contest, although the visitors seemed to adapt better.

A shot from Luke O’Neill took a slight deflection to deceive Craig MacGillivray, with the keeper recovering to push the ball clear.

Then, after Jack Whatmough had cut out Dean Parrett’s low delivery, Mark Byrne’s effort cannoned into his own player.

There was a moment of levity midway through the first half, as a shot from Max Ehmer went out for a throw.

But the Gills were still looking more likely to break the deadlock and Ehmer’s drive was cleared by Whatmough.

The ball came straight back into the box, however, where it was collected by Eaves, who spun and hammered a sumptuous volley into the roof of the net.

Pompey tried to hit back, although their final ball was mostly lacking, with too many passes being overhit.

They did have a decent opportunity just before the break, with Ben Close’s long-range attempt nervously cleared over his own crossbar by Ehmer.

But there was still time for Gillingham to double their advantage – although this goal was more stoppable than the first.

A corner from Parrett made its way through a crowded area and Lacey was left unmarked to turn it home.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

Gillingham 2


Jackett made a double switch at the break, with Gareth Evans and Close withdrawn for David Wheeler and Ben Thompson.

There was immediately some more urgency about their play, with an early attempt from Brett Pitman blocked.

Ronan Curtis and Jamal Lowe then both saw shots blocked in quick succession, as the noise from the stands began to rise.

And Gills keeper Tomas Holy was called into action for the first time on 51 minutes, getting down to his left to keep out Lowe’s drive.

It was certainly looking a lot livelier than before the interval, although the ball was not quite landing for the Blues, especially with a series of corners that the visitors managed to scramble clear.

O’Neill then made a vital interjection, just about nipping into nod clear with Pitman waiting to convert Lee Brown’s delivery.

With something special needed, Jackett made an attacking change on 74 minutes, replacing Nathan Thompson with Oli Hawkins.

But when Pitman did well to meet Ben Thompson’s cross and turn the ball back across goal, there was nobody in the centre to meet it.

Gillingham had weathered the storm, though, and saw out the final moments in relative comfort to become the first team this season to inflict a league loss on the Blues.
