FT Cambridge 0 Pompey 0

Play stopped with Hoolahan taking a whack to the head from a cross.

Ball drops to Ogilvie in the box but he lobs his finish over from 12 yards.

Hoolahan on for Brophy

Marquis on for Hirst

Curtis blasts over with the goal at his mercy from Harness cross. Very presentable chance to win it goes begging.

Lively at the Abbey with the home crowd feeling hard done by over refereeing decisions and making their feelings known.
