Portsmouth and Cheltenham shared a point in a goalless League Two draw.

Jake Jervis wasted Pompey's best first-half chance after he lashed his shot badly wide of the far post.

Pompey keeper Trevor Carson smothered Jermaine McGlashan's effort while Ashley Vincent hit a stunning strike against the Pompey post from 20 yards.

Wes Fogden's close-range effort squirmed wide of the Cheltenham post, before Ricky Holmes's strike was deflected tantalisingly across goal.

Barker post match

Portsmouth manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Solent:

"I thought we should have won the game although we were fairly wasteful in the final third.

"We finished the game with three wingers and two fresh strikers on the pitch so I don't think I could have done anymore.

"Scoring goals is what people come to watch football matches for...the clean sheet record now is excellent but the goal scoring needs to be improved."

Mark Yates: Cheltenham Town manager on draw with Portsmouth

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"It's a tough place to come, and I think we can be reasonably happy with our performance and another good point.

"I'm quite happy with the way they worked. I thought we were never in danger of losing the game.

"It was a test for the players in a sense that it was a full house with a bit of noise. It was something different to what we're used to, but they've got some good players and we stood up to them."
