The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

AL­THOUGH it was cagey at times, this bat­tle be­tween two sides chas­ing au­to­matic pro­mo­tion was a de­cent game of foot­ball.

Pos­ses­sion early on was split evenly, but it was Ox­ford who were able to ven­ture into the fi­nal third more of­ten with the ball, al­beit with a few odd calls from ref­eree Neil Swar­brick.

Ryan Ful­ton will have pleased the Portsmouth faith­ful with the teenager show­ing why he is on the books at An­field.

He had lit­tle choice but to come out and go for the ball in the build-up to the penalty he con­ceded, but Ful­ton showed fan­tas­tic men­tal strength to stop the kick and Hyl­ton’s fol­low-up.

His saves lifted Pom­pey, but they could not find the qual­ity to score, some­thing Jor­dan Bow­ery did show.
