Snorre Nilsen’s second-half header secured a point for Pompey’s reserves at Furze Lane this afternoon.

Occupying a midfield role against Cambridge United, the youngster popped up at the far post in the 51st minute to head home Elliot Wheeler’s cross.

Paul Hardyman’s side – who featured four trialists – had fallen behind in the 17th minute to a Jake Chambers-Shaw strike.

Bradley Tarbuck wasted a great chance in the 70th minute to give the hosts a victory, but overall a 1-1 draw was a fair result.
