Portsmouth 1-1 Mansfield Town

Ryan Taylor scored on his home debut for Portsmouth to rescue a draw against Mansfield in League Two.

The visitors could have opened the scoring early on as James Jennings curled a free-kick narrowly wide.

But they took the lead six minutes into the second half when Lee Stevenson executed a superb overhead kick.

Ross Dyer could have doubled the lead but hit the post, and so did David Connolly for Pompey, but Taylor raced through and slotted home the equaliser.

Post-match: Portsmouth boss Barker

Portsmouth boss Richie Barker told BBC Radio Solent:

"I was pleased with 80% of the performance, we should have won the game, we had the most chances, we were by far the better team in my opinion.

"I'm aware that it's frustrating, it's frustrating for everybody and in an ideal world we'd win the game.

"I thought David [Connolly] was excellent, he did exactly what we asked him to do. He looked bright, he looked sharp. He was influential when he came on. Can we throw him out there week in, week out for 90 minutes? Probably not, but we have to use him for what we can."
