Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth described the conditions as "the worst I have ever seen" as his side's clash at Portsmouth was abandoned at half time.

Referee Lee Collins had no option but to call a halt to proceedings after a thunderstorm and torrential rain left the Fratton Park pitch waterlogged.

Ainsworth said: "The ref made 100 per cent the right call. I have never seen conditions like it.

"The rain came hammering down and the safety of the players and fans is most important. The forecast was for even more rain in the second half so there was no other option."

The game was level at 1-1 when it was called off.

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 Collins' call easier by levelling seconds before the interval abandonment.

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

Pompey boss Guy Whittingham was most frustrated because centre-back Bradley picked up his fifth booking of the season and will now serve a one-match ban.

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.

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