FT Accrington 3 Pompey 3

It’s an acrobatic last-gasp goal from Marquis as the long free-kick comes off an Accy player and he acrobatically fires home!

Four mins stoppage time

DOUBLE STOP Sloppy moment from MacGillivray but redeems himself with a second stop to deny Bishop

Charlton score against Crewe

Moment of relief as MacGillivray and Raggett get in a mix and Burgess touches the ball on to the bar. Big let-off!
