Luke Rooney: Broke the deadlock

Luke Rooney: Broke the deadlock

Luton were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Portsmouth as they dropped points at home for the first time since September 13.

The hosts were in front on 13 minutes when winger Luke Rooney volleyed into the bottom corner after Shaun Whalley's ball over the top.

Pompey had precious few chances in the opening stages, bar Marcus Bean's volley that flew well over.

Mark Cullen then skewed wide from Michael Harriman's cross, before Pompey hit back with Johnny Ertl forcing Mark Tyler to tip over superbly.

The visitors levelled on 36 minutes when Ryan Taylor converted Jed Wallace's potshot from a yard out, while Andy Barcham should have made it 2-1 moments later, only to sidefoot wide from 10 yards.

After the break, Cullen tested Pompey goalkeeper Paul Jones with a low shot, while Jonathan Smith curled well wide and Rooney was off target from distance.

The hosts best opportunity saw Scott Griffiths reach the byline and his cross was met by Harriman, only for Jones to save low down.

Pompey barely sent anything at Tyler's goal in the second 45 minutes, with their only effort of note a Wallace drive that was cleared to safety.
