Portsmouth 3-3 Morecambe

Jayden Stockley scored a 90th-minute equaliser as Portsmouth came from three goals down to draw with Morecambe.

Tom Barkhuizen finished when one-on-one while an unmarked Alan Goodall nodded home a Jamie Devitt corner for 2-0.

Andy Fleming's header increased the Shrimps' lead before Pompey pulled one back through a Gary Roberts free-kick.

Roberts scored once more before Enda Stevens was sent off for Portsmouth, but they grabbed a last-minute point through substitute Stockley's header.

Cook on Portsmouth v Morecambe

"We didn't respect Morecambe with anywhere near the respect we've given other teams. We thought we'd turn up and win - and look what happens. Great credit to Morecambe, I thought they were excellent.

"What a great performance from the boys to get back, especially with 10 men, to create chance after chance late on in the game and in my opinion fully deserve the draw."

On Enda Steven's red card: "For us it's not a sending off and if you know Enda Stevens, there's no malice in Enda. It's a late challenge, it looks a nasty clash of heads but both lads are obviously watching the ball. From our point of view it's not a red."
