Depleted Grecians hold Pompey

Jed Wallace was on target as League Two promotion favourites Portsmouth opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Exeter.

The Grecians, beset by injuries and illness and under a transfer embargo, were forced to name manager Paul Tisdale on their bench, so few are his options right now.

And they were largely second best to a Pompey side that will feel they should have won the game, such was their dominance in the second half.

However, it was Exeter that went in front on 27 minutes when Craig Woodman's cross deflected into the path of Tom Nichols, who swivelled and lashed a superb volley past former Exeter goalkeeper Paul Jones.

Pompey stepped up several gears after the break and drew level on 72 minutes. The ball was played wide to the lively Wallace, who cut in from the right wing and saw his low cross evade everyone in the penalty box and end up in the far corner.

Pompey had chances to win the game with Ryan Bird seeing two headers saved by Christy Pym in the Exeter goal, while Liam Sercombe missed Exeter's best chance in the second half after a superb run from halfway.
