Abu Kamara nets as Portsmouth & Derby share top-table spoils

Joe Ward scored the first goal for the Rams in the 23rd minute. However, Abu Kamara from Sierra Leone scored soon after, bringing Pompey level within three minutes.

Both teams played well, but Both teams played well as Ward scored again 10 minutes before halftime, putting Derby back in the lead. Nevertheless, substitute Moxon scored from range in the second half – making the score 2-2.

Even though there is only a five-point difference between the two teams, John Mousinho’s team is in the lead with a game in hand over Paul Warne’s second-placed Rams.

Portsmouth manager John Mousinho, speaking to BBC Radio Solent:

“It was a pretty good performance against a perfect side, we take the point and let’s follow it up with a win at the weekend.

“The first goal was a brilliant move, I’m pleased with that and the second goal.

“The penalty shout looked stonewall for me involving Tino Anjorin but regardless we have put ourselves in a really good position with the result.”

Derby boss Paul Warne to BBC Radio Derby:

“Generally I’m pleased with a point. I think we went toe-to-toe pretty well.

“That one point could be the difference come the end of the season.

“A draw’s probably a fair result, but when you’ve got a lead like that, it’s disappointing to lose it to a screamer like that which could’ve gone anywhere.

“I’m pleased for Joe Ward. He’s really come into his own in the last couple of months.”
