The veteran striker gave Pompey the perfect start by heading in Jed Wallace's 22nd-minute free-kick to claim his first goal for the club.

But that lead lasted just five minutes before defender Shaun Williams struck a brilliant equaliser.

After Tuesday night's 1-1 draw against the Dons at Fratton Park, Whittingham said: "David is a very intelligent player and is a good asset for us. I am glad he got his goal because he worked very hard.

"He works really hard in training day in, day out.

"A draw was probably a fair result because we were the dominant team in the first half and they were the better team in the second.

"Our players worked very hard and there were some very encouraging performances out there."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
