Defender frustrated by Luton stalemate
Enda Stevens was left feeling frustrated by the outcome of Pompey’s final game of the year.
A stubborn Luton side – led by former Blues boss Andy Awford – kept them at bay to leave Fratton Park with a share of the spoils.
That was despite the hosts carving out the best chances of the contest and not having too much to deal with at the other end.
And Stevens knows that better results are needed if Pompey want to achieve their aim of automatic promotion this season.
The left-back said: “We dominated most of the game and were just unlucky not to end up with a goal.
“We still feel fresh and looked sharp out there – we certainly started really well and were positive throughout.
“There were patches when we didn’t play too well, but still created a lot of chances – certainly enough to get a win.
“You have to give Luton credit because they worked hard and were able to frustrate us.
“They looked to catch us on the counter-attack, but Matt Clarke and Adam Barton were excellent at the back.
“We want to pick up as many points as we can, so the last couple of results have been disappointing.
“But now we’ll look forward to the Crawley game on Saturday even more because it’s another chance to rectify things.
“We’re past the halfway stage of the season now, so it’s important we pick up more wins and get into those promotion places.”
