Andy Awford reflected on the win that got away following today’s goalless draw at Wycombe.

The Blues turned in an impressive display at the home of the league leaders – much to the appreciation a large away following.

Pompey should have been well ahead during a dominant first half in which Matt Tubbs alone missed two one-on-ones.

Other chances fell to the Blues players, before Wycombe improved after the break.

And afterwards Awford, whose future was this week discussed by Pompey’s board, was disappointed not to have collected a win he felt would have been fully-deserved.

He said: ‘I said to the players afterwards, today we deserved a point without a shadow of a doubt.

‘It was a very, very good performance again but the draws have got to start turning into wins.

‘We have drawn three out of five now and I think you could argue we could have possibly won three of those.

‘The performance level again was fantastic and we should have gone in with the lead at half-time and I think everybody in the ground would have agreed.’
