Football - Pompey rocked by Bradley ban

Portsmouth boss Guy Whittingham was frustrated to see centre-back Sonny Bradley pick up his fifth booking of the season before the game with Wycombe was abandoned at half-time with the scores level at 1-1.

He will now serve a one-match ban and Whittingham said: "I was not sure if bookings in abandoned games counted but it turns out they do, which is annoying for us and the lad."

Wycombe coped better with the sodden conditions and took the lead on the half-hour when Billy Knott finished well from 20 yards after Pompey had failed to clear a corner.

However, Patrick Agyemang made referee Lee Collins' call easier by levelling seconds before the interval abandonment, following a thunderstorm and torrential rain.

Ricky Holmes' free-kick was flicked on by Bradley and Agyemang found the net with an improvised finish from 12 yards.

"I have no complaints with the referee's decision," added Whittingham. "The ball was not rolling properly on the pitch so it was a no brainer."
