Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Match highlights - Pompey 1-1 Walsall

Pompey are still unbeaten at Fratton Park - recovering from the defeat at Oxford - but unlike the Rochdale win we had to settle for a point after a 1-1 draw against Walsall on Saturday.

The Blues were once again punished within minutes of the re-start when James Wilson was allowed too much time and freedom to get in a cross that was allowed to go all the way through to full back Luke Leahy who put Walsall ahead on 47 minutes.

In all honesty, as much as Pompey did have some half chances, better ones after the equaliser, I wasn't sure this would come until a dubiously awarded penalty for a foul on Nicke Kabamba by Walsall goalkeeper Mark Gillespie.

Pitman kept his nerve to score from the spot, the captain, who did a good job of raising the crowd, showing his intelligence and influence, twice went close to a winner for the Blues but a draw was how it ended.
