Brad Halliday
Halliday has played 24 times for York, but the goal against Pompey was his first since joining on loan from Middlesbrough

Brad Halliday cancelled out a late Matt Tubbs goal to earn York City a draw.

The Fratton Park side controlled much of the game, hitting the woodwork three times, before Tubbs scored his ninth goal for Portsmouth with a low drive from the edge of the box.

But the Minstermen hit back almost immediately as Halliday capitalised on a slip from Dan Butler and slotted in.

It means Pompey finish 16th in League Two, five points above 18th-placed York, who end the season with 20 draws.

Portsmouth caretaker boss Gary Waddock told BBC Radio Solent:

"In the second half we played extremely well. Their keeper had an excellent afternoon. and we're unfortunate not to take all three points.

"We'll be talking over the next few days. I want to be part of the club going forward so hopefully we can sort something out.

"It's up to the chairman and the board who they bring in, I have no idea if that will be tomorrow or in a few weeks, but I've enjoyed my time as caretaker."

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"It was nice to get a late goal and for Brad to get it it was very fitting. He's been outstanding since coming in from Middlesbrough.

"I'm delighted for the club. It moves us up a place as well and we haven't finished the season with a defeat.

"We've finished with a good point at a difficult place."
