Portsmouth   0 - 0   Ipswich

Ipswich Town"s Connor Wickham (right) hits the post with this effort under pressure from Portsmouth"s Ricardo Rocha and keeper Jamie Ashdown

Portsmouth 0-0 Ipswich

Portsmouth remain rooted to the foot of the Championship table after spurning a series of chances at Fratton Park.

New men Dave Kitson and Liam Lawrence were both handed debuts but could not inspire a first win for their side, who have scored only once in the league.

David Nugent came closest for the home side when his shot hit the crossbar.

Kitson shot wide but unbeaten Ipswich saw David Norris hit a post with a 25-yard strike and Grant Leadbitter denied by a sharp save from Jamie Ashdown.

Despite their problems, Portsmouth made a bright start and Kitson and Lawrence almost combined to put them in front after four minutes.

Lawrence, whose move from Stoke was only sanctioned on Saturday morning, swung over a corner from the left and Kitson rose highest, only to send his header wide of the target.

Leadbitter flashed a free-kick narrowly over the bar for the visitors but Portsmouth continued to press and Nugent hit the woodwork with a drive from the edge of the area.

Ipswich threatened going forward and on-loan defender Darren O'Dea volleyed over from close range after Leadbitter's corner was flicked on.

Luke Hyam had an opportunity to score his first senior goal for Town but the young midfielder volleyed over the crossbar four minutes before the break.

Early in the second half Portsmouth skipper Aaron Mokoena was carried off with what appeared to be a serious leg injury, and former Preston striker Nugent dragged his shot wide from just outside the penalty area.

Visiting keeper Marton Fulop kept out a stinging shot from Portsmouth substitute Michael Brown, then tipped away another effort from Nugent as the match ended in stalemate.
