Paul Cook's Portsmouth have been held to three goalless draws in their last four home games

Portsmouth manager Paul Cook is retaining faith in his side's performances despite a frustrating run of draws at home in League Two.

Pompey were unable to find a way past Mansfield in a goalless draw at Fratton Park on Saturday - their fifth home draw out of eight this season.

Cook's side remain second in the table thanks to an unbeaten away record.

"I'm still really pleased as what I want is for us to be built on a really solid base," he told BBC Radio Solent.

Portsmouth were held to a goalless draw for the third time in the last four home matches as Mansfield goalkeeper Brian Jensen produced a string of fine saves.

"I thought the shape and the structure of our side was excellent," Cook added.

"I'm pleased with my players, I'm pleased with where we are. We would've liked to have won more games at home, but we haven't and that's the reality of life.

"We've got a really good club and everyone should just be patient and be stronger."
