Newcastle draw with Pompey

Newcastle United's nerve wrecking end to the season continues as their future is still undecided and isn't getting any better after a goalless draw with Portsmouth at St.James' Park.

Newcastle United wasted two opportunities to have three points in the bag with misses from Obafemi Martins and Micheal Owen.

However,Portsmouth did have a few chances of their own as Richard Hughes hit the cross bar late on to send jitters down Newcastles' players spine as well as the coaching staff.

Martins blazed the ball over the bar in the first half and Michael Owens one on one effort against James were two chances Magpies might regret later.

This has put Alan Shearer without a win in his four games in charge at Tyneside.Magpies climb above Middlesbrough into 18th.

Portsmouth look a comfortabler lot with 7 points away from Newcastle United and at 14th position.
