Pompey go blank again
Pompey fired yet another blank as they drew o-o with Bristol, this time Pompey knocked and knocked at the Bristol door, but instead of slotting through the letterbox, they could only hit the back gate.
The scoreline doesn't tell a story, Bristol offered very little going forward and Pompey bombed up the other end as much as possible, trouble is, our strikers are having a Sahara style drought right now, we had plenty of efforts, but never really threatened our ex-keeper, Varney looked rustier than the tin man and Norris got in the position but could not finish.
Pompey gave a first start to Micky Maguire from Shameless, he ran his boots off and was a real livewire, but he like the others in blue could not find the finishing touch when it mattered.
The closest Pompey came to a goal all game was when David James fumbled a cross from Maguire that spun agonisingly close to the far post, but Pompey could not get that little bit of luck once more.
