Brezovan makes debut for Blues
Sam Matthews then saw his effort deflected just off target, while Young’s fine stop to deny Barcham was in vain as the winger was flagged offside.
It was Pompey who created the best openings as Bird saw his header tipped over the bar by Hawks keeper Ryan Young on 25 minutes.
Recent arrival Peter Brezovan made his first appearance in a Blues shirt between the sticks – not that he had much to do during a turgid match.
Both sides fielded a mix of youth and experience, with first teamers Adam Webster, Johnny Ertl, Dan Butler, Andy Barcham and Ryan Bird featuring for the visitors.
A Pompey XI played out a goalless draw with Havant & Waterlooville in a game of few chances at Westleigh Park.
Searle then did well to prevent both Barcham and Nick Awford from grabbing a winner for the Blues.
At the other end, Harry Wedlake sent an effort dipping over, while Harris fired just wide after shimmying into space.
Keeper Charlie Searle was forced into a low near-post save to deny Ben Close, while Matthews ballooned a shot over as Pompey continued to create the better openings.
The hosts changed their entire side at the interval, with former Blues striker Ashley Harris among the substitutes.
