Portsmouth's 2-2 draw at Cheltenham on Saturday maintained their unbeaten away record in League 2 but manager Guy Whittingham was left frustrated at the result.

As the game approached stoppage time, Jermaine McGlashan pounced to grab his second of the game and seal a point for the home side.

The result means the South Coast side have now drawn all three of their away fixtures in the league this season, despite taking the lead in every game, much to the displeasure of Whittingham.

"We've got to make sure we get this problem right because it is now three away games where we have been winning the game and have not been able to hold out," Whittingham told the Portsmouth News.

Despite his frustration, the man known as Corporal Punishment during his playing days at Fratton Park, has backed his players to solve the issue.

Whittingham said, "It's frustrating, of course it is. But they are a good bunch of guys and we know we will get this right."

The result comes in the wake of previous draws at Mansfield and Accrington Stanley, where the Blues held a 2-1 advantage in both games.

Like Cheltenham at the weekend, Accrington left it to the last five minutes to grab a share of the spoils.

Portsmouth had been the bookies pre-season favourites to take the League 2 crown, but they'll need to address their inability to hold onto away leads if they're to return to League 1 at the first time of asking.
