"With the equaliser coming so late in the game, it was two points lost.

"They had a lot of possession in front our back four but not behind us. Our keeper looked bright and sharp and they never looked like scoring today.

"However, they played a short corner and the cross came over to LuaLua and his shot, believe it or not, went through two pairs of legs - Aaron Hughes and Andy O'Brien - and went in.

"If we got this result, it would have been a good one for us. We only just came from a match in Norway on a Thursday night.

"Three points here today would have been massive for us. Portsmouth are fighting for their lives - trying to stay in the Premiership."

About LuaLua, he added:
"He's one of our players but he was a player in blue shirt and a player in a blue shirt scored against us.

"He's gone on loan to get more playing time and that has gone against us today, but he was a player in a blue shirt."

Harry Redknapp

"It would have been rough justice if we didn't something from that game.

"We just kept making opportunities and working hard. We've been like this all season.

"We've played some great football against a top side and that point will give us another boost as the players worked so hard and given so much.

"We're playing all the best teams at the moment but will give them a game, like we will against Arsenal in the FA Cup next week."
