Pompey were left frustrated at a sodden Fratton Park after failing to break down a resilient Gillingham side.
They enjoyed the majority of possession and chances, with Sean Raggett heading against the woodwork.
But the visitors from Kent were able to hold on and limit the Blues to their third home stalemate of the season.
Ellis Harrison was rewarded for his dramatic late winner against Doncaster with a spot in the starting line-up.
He replaced John Marquis up front in one of two changes from the side that were victorious in south Yorkshire.
The other switch was enforced, with Alex Bass making his second league start for Pompey between the sticks, as Craig MacGillivray was away on international duty with Scotland.
It was a dominant display from the hosts before the break and they almost took the lead in just the second minute.
Gareth Evans stole possession and charged forward before unleashing a low, skiddy drive that Jack Bonham did well to turn around the post.
Another drilled attempt from Ben Close soon after was parried by the Gillingham stopper and Tom O’Connor had to hack clear with Harrison waiting to pounce.
A teasing left-footed delivery then fell just between Christian Burgess and Harrison, as Pompey continued to apply pressure.
Evans was next to go close midway through the first half with a free-kick from wide on the left that was dipping under the crossbar before Bonham’s late intervention.
There was nothing to trouble Bass at the other end of the pitch, as long-range attempts from Mark Byrne and Mikael Ndjoli flew well off target.
The Blues were looking much more likely to break the deadlock and their opponents were left breathing a sigh of relief on 34 minutes.
An Evans free-kick was met by Raggett’s firm header and appeared to be flying in, only for the ball to come back off the inside of the post and be hacked to safety.
There were bookings for both sides, as Lee Brown and Max Ehmer were punished for fouls, while former Fratton loanee Stuart O’Keefe saw yellow for dissent.
Meanwhile, the hosts were still proving a real threat, with half-chances for both Harrison and Close as the interval loomed.
They almost received a helping hand from Connor Ogilvie, who swiped at thin air while trying to deal with James Bolton’s cross and had to be rescued by Bonham.
It was Pompey who had the first opportunity to score after the break and Bonham got down to deal with Harrison’s effort.
Jackett made a change on 54 minutes and Pitman appeared to have collected a knock as he made way for Marquis.
Bass was still waiting to make his first save of the afternoon, although there was one nervy moment in the Blues box for the defence to deal with.
It was still the hosts seeing most of the ball and they were being left frustrated by a well-drilled opposition back-line.
Meanwhile, the Gillingham management team were constantly in the ear of the fourth official, drawing plenty of ire from the Fratton faithful.
Marquis tried to spin Ogilvie and race through on goal from Naylor’s long pass on 68 minutes, but a free-kick was awarded for a foul against the Gills centre-back.
And Brown then did well to beat his man on the left and charge into the box, only to follow it up by firing wide.
A double substitution soon followed for the hosts, as Close and Evans made way for Andy Cannon and Ryan Williams.
But chances were proving to be hard to come by and the visitors were doing their best to waste as much time as possible.
It had taken 82 minutes for Bass to have a save to make and he was not particularly troubled by Brandon Hanlan’s weak effort.
Pompey were the side trying hardest to turn one point into three and hopes were raised by the display of five additional minutes.
The winner almost arrived at the death when Williams’ cross dropped nicely for Brown, but he could only flash a shot wide.
And despite plenty of endeavour and application, they were unable to break down the red-shirted wall.

When Frankie Baldwin and Nate Deluca both have a claim to ownership of Sorrento Farm, they are forced to divide the vineyard right down the middle and work the fields alongside each other to bring in the harvest leading up to the Best Wine competition at the annual Autumn Harvest Festival – only this rivalry won't be settled in the fields, because in spite of their contentious bickering, the simplest way to settle this particular legal dispute is with a romance.
Well this is a Hallmark film so you pretty much know it's going to be a cheesy romance. This one stars Rachael Leigh Cook so it has a head start over most.
Bradley Lethbridge scored his first senior Pompey goal in a draw with Oxford in the Leasing.com Trophy.
The striker cancelled out Matty Taylor’s opener at a sparsely-populated Kassam Stadium in Southern Group B.
Anton Walkes then looked to have won it for the youthful visitors with a late strike, only for Rob Dickie to level in stoppage-time.
But the night ended on a happy note for the Blues, as they won 5-4 on penalties to claim a bonus point and secure top spot, guaranteeing a home draw in the second round.
Kenny Jackett changed the entire side that won at Doncaster in the league at the weekend, with five teenagers getting a chance to impress.
Harvey Rew was handed his debut a week after signing a first professional contract and was joined in the starting line-up by Joe Hancott, Josh Flint, Leon Maloney and Lethbridge.
Paul Downing skippered a defence that also included Brandon Haunstrup and Walkes, with Alex Bass between the sticks.
Ryan Williams – who previously had a spell on loan with the hosts – and Andy Cannon completed the team, while there were plenty of experienced reinforcements on the bench.
Pompey’s young side started brightly and enjoyed plenty of possession in the opening stages, without being able to test former Fratton keeper Simon Eastwood.
They had a chance to break the deadlock when Cannon and Williams combined to tee-up Lethbridge, but he screwed wide from 10 yards.
And the more experienced hosts soon started to take control, with Rob Hall dragging a shot wide before Bass denied Taylor at his near post.
Rew was perhaps unfortunate to be shown a yellow card on 19 minutes for a challenge that referee Will Finnie deemed excessive.
United then broke the deadlock soon after, as Taylor latched onto Shandon Baptiste’s threaded pass and slotted home.
And the same player should have immediately doubled the lead, only to see his first effort saved by Bass and the second fly off target.
Pompey picked up after that nervy period, though, and levelled on 33 minutes thanks to a first senior goal for Lethbridge.
It started when Cannon stole possession and cut the ball back for Flint, whose effort was deflected into the striker’s path.
The angle was tight for LETHBRIDGE, but he got enough power on his shot for the ball to squirm under Eastwood and over the line.
It was United who finished the half on top, however, and a fierce drive from Cameron Brannagan had to be parried down by Bass and gathered at the second attempt.
And the keeper made an even better save just before the break, acrobatically tipping over Taylor’s firm header from a Josh Ruffels delivery.
Oxford United 1
Jackett made a double switch at the start of the second half, with Flint and Rew replaced by Gareth Evans and Ben Close.
It was Cannon who had the first shot following the restart, but quickly saw four yellow shirts around him and could only fire wide.
An angled effort from Maloney was then comfortably dealt with by Eastwood in a low-key opening to proceedings.
Then, after Hall had an effort deflected wide at the other end, Dickie diverted a corner straight at Bass.
Jackett made his final switch just past the hour mark, with goalscorer Lethbridge withdrawn and Saturday’s hero Ellis Harrison on in his place.
But it was United on the attack and they had two decent chances to retake the lead in quick succession.
First, Bass came off his line to narrow Taylor’s angle and make a smart stop after the striker had been sent through on goal.
Another header from Dickie was then blocked on the line by Williams, with Finnie waving away handball appeals.
Close has scored a couple of spectacular strikes already this season and tried to add a third when he hit a dipping ball cleanly on the volley, but it lacked the power to overly trouble Eastwood.
Evans then had a great chance after being sent through on goal by Maloney, only to lose his balance at the crucial moment, allowing his shot to be saved.
But Bass was keeping the Blues in the contest and he made another fine save to repel Brannagan’s fierce angled drive on 75 minutes.
And Walkes was also called into action moments later to block a powerful goal-bound effort from substitute Dan Agyei.
Pompey might have capitalised on a quick break, but the onrushing Williams could not quite reach Harrison’s ball across the box.
And they did go ahead on 85 minutes after WALKES raced on to a fine pass down the right from the lively Cannon.
Eastwood came off his line, but the right-back just about got there first and was able to send the ball rolling over the line.
But Oxford managed to draw level in stoppage-time when a free-kick was launched into a crowded box and Dickie spun before finding the bottom corner.
Full Time: Oxford 2 Pompey 2
A penalty shoot-out was then held to decide who would take the bonus point, with Evans, Harrison, Williams and Downing all scoring.
But Close sent his attempt high over the bar to hand the advantage to the hosts, only for Ruffels’ shot to be brilliantly saved by Bass.
Walkes and Agyei both failed to find the target in sudden death and after Haunstrup rolled home his penalty, Sam Long blazed high over the bar.
