Pompey picked up a decent point at league leaders Wycombe Wanderers - but will have their regrets that they failed to take all three.

The Blues bossed the first half but failed to make the most of an impressive first 45 minutes and they should have been ahead at the break.

Matt Tubbs had two excellent chances as he went through on goal but failed to take either opportunity as the search for his first Pompey goal went on.

But Wycombe so nearly snatched the lead before the interval when Joe Jacobson’s shot rattled the underside of Paul Jones’ crossbar and rebounded to safety.

The second half was less enthralling and Wycombe probably edged it without creating anything too clear cut, other than Fred Onyedinma’s header.

But Pompey were nothing like the same attacking force after the break and failed to really trouble the home goalkeeper as they claimed a useful point.

While Andy Awford would certainly have taken a point before the game he may well count the cost of those missed first-half opportunities.
