'There's hope... encouraging signs' - how Portsmouth fans on Twitter reacted to 2-2 draw at Accrington
Pompey fans on Twitter were seeing the positives from Pompey’s 2-2 draw at Accrington today.
Despite throwing away a 1-0 half-time lead and seeing the Blues go three matches without a win as they sit 16th in the table, the Fratton faithful saw signs of improvement at the Wham Stadium – especially after Marcus Harness’ 86th-minute leveller.
Indeed, many supporters assumed yet another capitulation after Harry Pell (50 minutes) and then Matt Butcher (77) cancelled out Ronan Curtis’ 18th-minute opener.
Yet, Pompey showed the character which boss Danny Cowley has been demanding of his side in recent weeks, allowing Harness to secure a well-deserved point.
And with the Blues recording 19 shots during the game, it was enough for Pompey fans to think positively about what had just unfolded in Lancashire.
Here’s a selection of the views we spotted...
