FULTON SHOWS PROMISE IN VAIN
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.
