All the action from Tuesday night's reserve league clash against Portsmouth at Havant & Waterlooville FC.


Full-time: Portsmouth 1, Spurs 0

Added time: CHANCE - SPURS. Good move, Fraser-Allen stood up cross from the right, Pekhart won the air and Hutchins laid back for Rose to strike, Duffy out to make fine block.

86mins: Richie wide to Aubey, got it back left corner of the box, tame shot straight at Button.

78mins: CHANCE - POMPEY. Home side should have wrapped it up as Songo'o robbed Archibald-Henville and squared for Subotic, 10 yards out, clear, side-footed over.

77mins: Martin long pass from defence sent Rose away, good defensive work from Duffy blocked attempted shot out for corner.

76mins: Button dived in bravely to divert Blackman's cross away from Subotic.

71mins: One-two between Wilson and Subotic, Wilson clean strike from 22 yards flashed over.

68mins: CLOSE - POMPEY. Wilson curled free-kick, left side of box, over the wall and just wide.

50mins: Good work from Townsend centrally before sending Rose away down the left, low cross aimed for Pekhart at near post, ball didn't fall right for him.

Half-time: Portsmouth 1, Spurs 0

Added time: Subotic threatened to break through centrally, good cover from Hughton to clear.

43mins: Hutton break and wide to Dawkins, inside to Rose, could have pulled trigger from edge of box but fed in Townsend instead down the left byline, low cross deflected just wide by Duffy. From corner, Archibald-Henville free header, came to him quickly and angled effort well wide.

40mins: SAVE - BUTTON. Blackman picked out Songo'o square, 25 yards out, didn't need second invitation to let fly with left foot and hit piledriver that Button did well to touch over.

36mins: GOAL - POMPEY. Fine crossfield pass from Ritchie, left channel, found Songo'o who cut inside Dervite before hitting low shot beyond Button into far corner from 16 yards.
Portsmouth 1, Spurs 0
