AFC Portchester manager Glenn Bridgman felt robbed after his side suffered a 4-3 Wessex League premier division defeat to Christchurch at Wicor Mill.

‘We were denied a blatant penalty two minutes from time,’ said Bridgman.

‘Simon Woods was fouled at least three yards inside the area and all we got was a free-kick outside the box. It was shocking.

‘We deserved at least a point after coming from behind twice to lead 3-2 at half-time.

‘In the second half we dominated only to get caught twice on the counter-attack.

‘It was a great game for the neutrals.’

Fareham Town led twice but had to settle for a share of the points in a 2-2 draw at Hamworthy.

Bryn McKie gave the Reds a 32nd-minute lead only for the home side to hit back and level five minutes later.

Substitute Tom Winzar looked to have earned the Reds a win four minutes from time but the home side grabbed a last-minute equaliser.
