STANLEY boss John Coleman felt a lack of concentration cost his side in their 2-2 draw against Portsmouth.

Pompey took the lead after 15 minutes through Ronan Curtis but the Reds hit back through Harry Pell and Matt Butcher.

Coleman’s men looked set to make it back-to-back wins in League One but Marcus Harness got the visitors back on level terms with four minutes to go

“It was a good game, it was two teams having a go,” said the Stanley boss.

“We knew Portsmouth would start strongly and we were lucky to be only 1-0 down at half-time, it could have been two or three. Toby Savin was our man of the match, he made some superb saves.

“We were a different animal after the break, created chances and got our goal and thought we would go on and win the game comfortably.

“They came back and we probably took the lead against the run of play to go 2-1 up but then a lack of concentration has cost us.

“That’s happened far too often this season and the amount of goals we have conceded is what is stopping us being a team challenging at the top and that’s something we have got to address.

“Teams aren’t having to work to score against us. Portsmouth probably shaded it but with the way it went we are disappointed with the draw.”

The Reds are back in action on Saturday afternoon when they head to Priestfield to take on Gillingham (KO 3pm).
