Striker frustrated with Wycombe draw

Matt Tubbs felt that Pompey looked like the League Two leaders at Wycombe.

The Blues had dropped to 18th ahead of their trip to Adams Park to face the division’s summit sitters.

However, they created plenty of openings in a dominant first half display and were unfortunate to only go in level at the interval.

The Chairboys did improve in the second half, but Tubbs felt that his side deserved more for their efforts.

He said: “On the whole you have to look at it as a good point against the side at the top of the league.

“But we were all frustrated after the final whistle that we didn’t get all three.

“We dominated in the first half and a neutral watching would probably have thought we were leading the division.

“If it was decided on chances created then we would have run away with the game because we had the clear-cut ones.

“It wasn’t our day in front of goal, although we got a bit of luck when they had one that came back off the crossbar.

“On another occasion it could have been 4-0 at half-time, but there are still plenty of positives for us to take.

“The manager got it spot-on because you could see how well we played before the break.

“The supporters were brilliant as well – they’re our 12th man and one of the reasons why I signed for this club.”

Most of Pompey’s best openings fell to Tubbs, who was denied by Wycombe keeper Matt Ingram on three occasions.

The striker said: “I should be scoring those goals. I’m my own worst critic and those chances will be going through my head all night.

“But I’ll be back in on Monday for shooting practice and hopefully I can start finding the back of the net soon.”
