Gary Waddock felt Pompey deserved to complete their League Two season with victory after they were pegged back for a 1-1 draw with York City.

The Blues sparked into life with a much-improved display after the break but Matt Tubbs’ opener seven minutes from time was then cancelled out just two minutes later by Brad Halliday.

Caretaker boss Waddock said: ‘I think we played very well in the second half and created a lot of opportunities, but we came up against a keeper who was in very good form.

‘Unfortunately, we ended up with a point and possibly deserved more.

‘It’s the way it has been for us this season.

‘But we have to draw a line under that and we have to look to a brighter future, especially with the younger players that have been introduced into the team.

‘We’ve had some injuries and these young lads have had opportunities at first-team level and they have taken it.’
