PORTSMOUTH’S draw with Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley al­lowed ti­tle chal­lengers Peter­bor­ough to move to within two points af­ter beat­ing Bur­ton Al­bion away from home.

And Sun­der­land are breath­ing down both their necks af­ter they trounced Southend 3-0 at the Sta­dium of Light, record­ing their fourth suc­ces­sive league win.

The race for pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship looks set to go to the wire, and ev­ery point is go­ing to count, as Kenny Jack­ett is well aware.

His side could have been out of sight in the first half an hour and he will know more ruth­less­ness will be needed to turn draws like this into wins. Given the form of other clubs, it looks prob­a­ble a high points to­tal will be needed to se­cure a place in the top two of League One this sea­son.

Jack­ett knows he can’t af­ford for his side to drop points like this.
