Rory Loy put the visitors ahead after 51 minutes before a Liam Walker penalty rescued Pompey a point with 12 minutes left.

The Blues have now gone 21 games without a victory but Whittingham believes Pompey's first win since October 20 is within reach, despite watching his side sink to the bottom of the League One table.

He said: "Confidence is the biggest thing for any footballer. If they're confident in their ability and confident when they go out there with their team-mates week in and week out, they'll play better. It's improving.

"I think the players feel themselves that things are changing slightly. It's not going to be a quick turnaround when you're coming off the back of the run we've had and you're in the run we're in.

"It's a point and it's probably one we might have lost a few weeks ago and heads might have gone down after we went a goal down. So that shows there is a spirit building there."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
