Scunthorpe 1-1 Portsmouth

Scunthorpe 1-1 Portsmouth

Striker David Nugent grabbed an 81st-minute equaliser as Portsmouth ended their season with a draw against relegated Scunthorpe.

On-loan winger Ramon Nunez gave the hosts a 26th-minute lead with a fine 20-yard shot past keeper Jamie Ashdown.

Nugent struck the woodwork in the 55th minute before netting his 14th goal of the season as Portsmouth pushed ahead.

And Nugent went close in the final moments but his shot was blocked by defender Michael Nelson.

Scunthorpe's relegation from the Championship to League One was confirmed when they were beaten 5-1 by Nottingham Forest, but the home supporters were given a rousing display on the final day of the season - despite finishing bottom of the table.

Meanwhile, the visitors' lack of prowess in front of goal once again cost them the opportunity of collecting three points - the south coast club have not scored more than one goal in a game since winning 2-0 at Scunthorpe on 1 March.

Nunez's opener ensured Iron were rewarded for a promising opening 25 minutes, while Mark Duffy was twice denied by south coast club visiting keeper Ashdown.

However, Poompey boss Steve Cotterill's half-time team talk roused the visitors, who saw Hermann Hreidarsson's volley blocked by Scunthorpe defender Paul Reid.

The woodwork denied the visitors a 55th-minute equaliser when Nugent's 25-yard shot cannoned back off the post with goalkeeper Josh Lillis well beaten.

At the other end, Nunez went close with a spectacular long-range effort while Michael O'Connor's curling free-kick was tipped away by Ashdown.

But Nugent's low finish - deflected off Nelson - evaded Lillis' dive to level the scores while the Doncaster defender came to his side's rescue with a late block as Nugent looked poised to add his 15th of the season.
