Half-Time Report: Jed Wallace strike sends Portsmouth in level

Plymouth Argyle and Portsmouth score a goal apiece during the opening 45 minutes at Home Park.

A goal from Jed Wallace in the closing stages of the first half has sent visiting Portsmouth into the interval of their clash with Plymouth Argyle level at one goal apiece this afternoon.

The hosting Pilgrims started the brighter of the two sides and could have taken the lead in the sixth minute when Conor Hourihane sent over a free kick for Curtis Nelson, but the defender headed over the target.

Hourihane fared better than his teammate in the 21st minute, though, when he capitalised on an error from Pompey right-back Yassin Moutaouakil to fire past Trevor Carson.

That goal prompted a positive reaction from Guy Whittingham's visitors and with 35 minutes played Plymouth goalkeeper Luke McCormick was forced to dive full stretch to tip over John Marquis's shot from distance.

However, four minutes later McCormick was beaten. The ball broke for Wallace on the edge of the area and the 19-year-old sent a half-volley beyond the reach of the Plymouth stopper.

The home side finished the half in the ascendancy, but both Reuben Reid and Nelson spurned chances.
