Pompey’s reserves played out a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth this afternoon.

The Cherries took the lead in the 33rd minute when Elliott Ward lashed home Sam Matthews’ right-wing corner.

But within five minutes Pompey were level when Jack Maloney drove in a cross from the right which Nigel Atangana finished.

In the second half, Tom Craddock had a header cleared off the line, while Ryan Allsop finger-tipped Adam Webster’s drive over the bar.

But Paul Hardyman’s side had to settle for a draw in an entertaining contest at Furze Lane.
