Portsmouth 3-3 Plymouth Argyle

Portsmouth's Danny Hollands signed off his season with a hat-trick, but it was not enough to deny Plymouth a draw.

Hollands headed in Ryan Taylor's cross before Reuben Reid turned on to Luke Young's cross and lashed in a leveller.

Hollands stabbed home his second from Ricky Holmes' pass but Conor Hourihane curled a fine free-kick for 2-2.

On-loan Hollands completed his hat-trick when he nodded in Holmes's cross but Hourihane drove home a loose ball in the box to equalise late on.

Portsmouth manager Andy Awford: "We were in front three times so to get pegged back is disappointing but I am not going to criticise the players as the effort they have shown over the past seven games has been phenomenal.

"Today was all about thanking the supporters for helping keeping this club in the Football League. We need them and appreciate the support.

"Danny Hollands was top drawer and has made a huge impact since coming into the side. If we could keep him we would be delighted, we'll sit down with his agent and try and get that done."
