Michael Appleton hailed Pompey’s display at MK Dons as their best of the season.

The Blues picked up a 2-2 draw at Stadium MK today against the promotion chasers.

Pompey were rampant in the first-half against Karl Robinson’s side, scoring two goals, missing a penalty and creating a host of chances.

The home side reduced the arrears before the break and pushed the Blue back after the interval, scoring with 18 minutes left.

Appleton was pleased with what he saw from his men though, as the draw keeps confidence going moving forward.

He said: ‘MK Dons will more than likely be in the top two and get promoted.

‘So overall I think we are pleased to come away with a point.

‘The performance was probably the best I’ve seen from the side this season, especially in the first half.

‘We had a game plan going into the match and it worked a treat.

‘We should have had two penalties and had a host of chances.

‘If we’d said we’d get seven points from three games at the start of the week we’d be delighted.’
