Reeco Hackett took his goal tally for the season to three with Pompey’s first half equaliser against Cheltenham.

But the forward was in not exactly in the mood to celebrate after opening his account at Fratton Park.

The Blues were unable to go on and find another breakthrough, ultimately having to settle for a 1-1 draw.

And Hackett was left frustrated that they were not able to find a repeat of Saturday’s victory over Bolton.

He said: “Overall, it was a disappointing outcome for us and we felt like it was a case of two points dropped.

“We wanted to make it back-to-back wins, but it seemed as though we were lacking a little bit of quality.

"It was good to get back into the game and then we came out looking better in the second half, but it wasn’t enough."

“The start from us just wasn’t good enough. You could feel that around the ground and I have to put my hand up because it was a sloppy goal to give away.

“But the important thing is how you react in those situations – and I felt we did quite well after falling behind.

“I wasn’t happy at the time I scored because of the way we were playing, although it gave us something to build on.

“It was good to get back into the game and then we came out looking better in the second half, but it wasn’t enough.

“Of course I was pleased to score a goal, but everyone wanted the right result and so we feel disappointed.

“That’s the way everyone is going to feel when we don’t get a win here at Fratton Park. If we’re not winning, then I’m certainly not happy.”
