Andy Awford felt a draw was a fair result following this afternoon’s visit of Wycombe.

Sam Wood opened the scoring on 50 minutes for the Chairboys, but Johnny Ertl levelled 20 minutes later.

It was a first Fratton Park goal for the Austrian, who replaced Jack Whatmough at half-time.

Jed Wallace also hit the bar, while Matt McClure had a shot cleared off the line by Paul Robinson during the fixture.

But Awford felt the 1-1 scoreline was a decent reflection.

He said: ‘I think we have contributed to a good, entertaining game.

‘We have had two or three chances, they have had two or three chances and it was pretty even from where I was stood.

‘The attacking intent was there from Jed on the right-hand side and Dan Butler on the left-hand side, I thought Dan was fantastic today.

‘You are disappointed to concede any goal, but we knew the long free-kick was coming, they want height on the ball and to keep it in the box. We didn’t clear it and they scored.

‘The thing that pleased me was the reaction to going behind and we looked a threat still from being behind – then Johnny got the equaliser.’
