Portsmouth   1 - 1   Millwall

Portsmouth v Millwall

Highlights - Portsmouth 1-1 Millwall

Portsmouth had to settle for a point after being held by Millwall.

The visitors went ahead when Pompey goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown saved an effort from Steve Morison only for Liam Trotter to nod in the rebound.

David Nugent had a goal disallowed before heading in an equaliser after Liam Lawrence's sliced shot was knocked back into the box by Dave Kitson.

Hayden Mullins's shot hit the Millwall post, while Ashdown had to save from Morison before the spoils were shared.

Mullins also blazed over late on and Nugent headed wide from an in injury-time cross by Michael Brown as the south coast side missed the chances that could have earned them victory in what was an entertaining match at Fratton Park.

The Lions had the upper hand in the first half but, after the home side dominated proceedings after the break, and the visitors ended up hanging on for a point.

Pompey had been boosted by the return of Hermann Hreidarsson for the game as the defender returned to make his first start in nine months after rupturing an Achilles tendon.

However, even though the home side's captain Aaron Mokoena survived being sent off within 78 seconds for a lunge on Morison, the home side were proving to be second best.

Millwall had started brightly and, after missing several chances, Trotter was on hand to float in a header after Morison's fierce strike had been parried.

Morison twice came close to extending his side's lead but their failure to capitalise on their dominance came back to haunt them.

Pompey were revitalised in the second half and Kitson stabbed a shot agonisingly wide before Mullins clipped the outside of the upright with a first-time shot.

But Nugent made no mistake after he stole in at the near post to grab his seventh goal of the season.
