Jed Wallace’s leveller earned Pompey a 1-1 draw at Plymouth in their lunchtime League Two clash.

The Blues midfielder cracked home a sweet strike six minutes before the break after Conor Hourihane had put the Pilgrims ahead on 21 minutes.

Pompey made a sloppy start to the contest and might have fallen behind early when Curtis Nelson put a header wide from six yards out.

But the Blues did go a goal down after a shocking piece of defending from Yassin Moutaouakil.

The right-back presented Hourihane with an easy chance after he attempted to chest down a cross inside his own box, and the Plymouth man made no mistake as he hammered his shot past Trevor Carson.

Guy Whittingham’s side finally found some form as half-time approached when Wallace injected some much-needed quality into proceedings.

Moutaouakil’s cross just evaded John Marquis but the loose ball fell nicely to Wallace, who took a touch and picked his spot with a fine finish.

Neither side really deserved to win the game after the break.

But Moutaouakil capped a mixed day with a brilliant last-ditch tackle to deny Reuben Reid when the Plymouth man seemed certain to score.

While Pompey will ask a few questions on why they started the game so poorly, they did at least get themselves back into the contest for a share of the spoils.
