Burnley 1-1 Portsmouth

Burnley 1-1 Portsmouth

Burnley came from behind to earn a point at home to Portsmouth, but the result does little to help their hopes of securing a play-off spot.

Pompey's David Nugent opened the scoring against his former club with a superb drive into the top corner.

But Chris Eagles matched it with an impressive drive of his own with 16 minutes remaining.

The point means Burnley remain in eighth place, but they now trail sixth-placed Nottingham Forest by two points.

Portsmouth move to 57 points with two games to go and sit 14th in the table.

The visitors started brightly but it was the home side who had the first chances, Jay Rodriguez going close with a header and Eagles narrowly missing with a 25-yard drive.

Portsmouth keeper Jamie Ashdown was called into action shortly after, firstly to parry Chris McCann's 20-yard shot and then to grasp Daniel Fox's follow-up effort at the second attempt.

The home side also had calls for a penalty waved away after the ball appeared to strike Joel Ward's arm in the box.

Greg Halford tested Burnley keeper Brian Jensen with a long-range effort early in the second half, shortly before Nugent gave them the lead.

Nwankwo Kanu rolled the ball to the striker 20 yards out, and the former England man crashed an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

Almost immediately, Burnley missed two superb chances to equalise when Wade Elliott went clean through but Ashdown saved and then Chris Iwelumo sent a header straight at the keeper from six yards out.

However, the Clarets got the equaliser in the 74th minute when Tyrone Mears fed Eagles, who made no mistake with an angled drive.

Burnley pushed for a winner but were almost hit with a sucker punch when Nugent found himself one-on-one with Jensen, but the keeper came out on top.
