Winger Jamal Lowe squandered two great chances for Kenny Jackett’s troops in the closing stages, but fifth-placed Addicks saw it out to close the gap to two points on place-above Pompey.

And centre-back Burgess believes the Blues’ strong finish should have seen them take something from the match.

He said: ‘It was disappointing to leave with nothing.

‘Towards the end of the second half we could have got something from the game and maybe deserved to leave with a point.

‘Overall, I thought it was two good sides that battled really hard and it was an entertaining game for the neutrals.

‘It was just unfortunate the fine margins didn’t quite go our way.’
