Portsmouth 1 Shrewsbury 1: Best tweets 

Pompey kept up their unbeaten start to the League One season with a 1-1 draw against Shrewsbury on Saturday.

However, the Blues were well below their best against John Askey’s side and their performance was the opposite to the previous weekend’s win over Plymouth.

Brett Pitman rescued Pompey a point with an 87th-minute penalty, cancelling out Greg Docherty’s opening goal.

Here’s how some members of the Fratton faithful reacted to the performance on Twitter...

Brett Pitman has now scored 18 goals in 25 home appearances for #Portsmouth in all competitions (20 starts). #BrettTheHitmanPitman

If you think Pompey were ‘shocking’ or anything like that today, then you clearly haven’t been going very long cause there have been a billion times worse than that over the years. Some people need their heads checking #Pompey

@PompeyPedro

Not making excuses for Burgess but worth noting that most of our players made some bad mistakes today, it just so happened his led to a goal. Just my opinion but Pompey fans, especially online, need to get out the habit of vilifying players for individual mistakes. Helps no one

@djliamh

Not the best performance from #Pompey this afternoon, but I think it’s harsh to be picking out individuals. Players make mistakes. We’re still unbeaten so far and for me that’s all that matters!

@FFSChristie

Pompey MOTM: North Stand Lino for not letting the ref bottle the absolute stonewaller at the end there, because we all know he wasn’t gonna give it otherwise

@PompeyChiv

Pompey poor today. Thought Evans in particular couldn't get his range with passing or shooting. Still got a draw though and we move on. Ref was rubbish as usual

@PompeyJay

We just weren’t ourselves today but roll on next game and hopefully have had ironed out the creases that caused it. We are bound to have a few spin outs in the season

@Michael_Eisner

Happy for the tie, will take the point, a good fight until the last whistle. Next weekend, the big match for top of table.@officialpompey
