Portsmouth 2-2 Peterborough United

Peterborough's League One top scorers continued their personal duel with Ivan Toney and Mo Eisa both scoring to earn Darren Ferguson's side a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Portsmouth.

Toney opened the scoring on 10 minutes when Oli Hawkins took an air shot at Dan Butler's cross and the unmarked striker could barely miss from a yard out to register his 13th league goal of the season.

Lee Brown got Portsmouth on level terms on 26 minutes as the full-back drilled a free-kick left-footed under the jumping Peterborough wall for his first goal for Pompey.

Seven minutes after the restart John Marquis played in Ellis Harrison to put Pompey in front with a low angled shot inside the area that trickled over the line.

Eisa rescued Peterborough a point with an emphatic header from six yards out from Butler's pinpoint cross for his 13th league goal of the campaign, matching Toney for the division lead.
