York City 0-0 Portsmouth

Danny Hollands
Portsmouth's Danny Hollands had a chance to win it for his side against York City

Struggling York are still without a home win this season following a goalless draw with Portsmouth.

The Minstermen have now failed to win any of their seven outings at Bootham Crescent while Pompey have gone four away matches without scoring.

Skipper Danny Hollands went closest for Portsmouth with an edge-of-the-box shot that flashed narrowly wide.

For York, new loan signing Ryan Brunt headed wide from four yards in the third minute of stoppage time.

Portsmouth manager Andy Awford told BBC Radio Solent:

"It's another satisfying point, a good performance at a difficult place to come.

"They are hard to beat. I think they have had about 20 draws in 30 games or something like that. I am delighted with what I saw today and pleased with the point.

"I am really pleased with the effort, the application and the performance levels. We look solid as a rock, we don't look like conceding.

"Everybody's in it together and long may it continue, I am really pleased with the way it's going at the moment."
