Pompey Ladies fought from two goals down to snatch a point against Chichester at Westleigh Park.

Shannon Albuery and Molly Clark both struck late on after the visitors had been reduced to 10 players.

The Blues started brightly, with Samantha Quayle and Natasha Stephens both having shots saved, while Albuery’s effort found the side netting.

But it was Chichester who broke the deadlock before the break when Charley Wilson-Blakely – playing against her former club – sent a header in off the post.

And they extended their advantage early in the second half, as Cherelle Khassal beat the offside trap before slotting into the net.

Pompey poured forward, but were left frustrated in their search for a goal and Stephens could only find the woodwork after being teed-up by Quayle.

But they were given a glimmer of hope when Kerrie Ryan fouled Quayle to earn her second booking of the evening.

And Albuery did manage to reduce the deficit on 76 minutes, meeting Stephens’ cross with a stunning header.

Clark then scored an even better goal moments later, with an unstoppable shot that soared into the roof of the net to ensure a share of the spoils.
