Recap: Portsmouth 2-2 Plymouth Argyle. Sean Raggett's injury time equaliser ends Pompey's losing streak
Sean Raggett scored a 95th minute equaliser to grab Pompey a well deserved point at Fratton Park.
The Blues ended a run of four consecutive defeats in all competitions by claiming a hard-fought point against Plymouth Argyle.
Lee Brown had given the Blues the lead before a second half brace from Ryan Hardie looked to have given the Pilgrims all three points.
However, Danny Cowley’s tactical tweaks paid dividends as Raggett reacted quickly to head home from close range.
