Guy Whittingham: Happy with a draw

Pompey bounced back from two straight defeats at the end of September with a 3-0 league win over Rochdale and a 2-1 midweek victory at Oxford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

They trailed to Conor Hourihane's early goal at Home Park on Saturday but Jed Wallace's third goal in four games secured a well-earned point.

Whittingham said: "We've had two wins and a draw in the space of a week and that's very pleasing for us.

"You set up to try to win the game, but I was happy that we were able to get back into it and then push on a bit in the second half.

"I thought the result was fair. We got the goal at the right time - scoring just before the break gave us a boost.

"I thought we were then the better side for the first 25 minutes of the second half before Plymouth came back towards the end."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
