Everton manager David Moyes was left to rue conceding a goal deep into added time in their FA Cup fifth round draw with Oldham at Boundary Park. The Premier League side looked to be heading through to the quarter-finals as goals from Victor Anichebe and Phil Jagielka put them in front after Jordan Obita had fired Oldham ahead early on. But substitute Matt Smith headed home a corner in a packed penalty box to secure a 2-2 draw and a replay at Goodison Park. Moyes was gracious enough to admit that the League One side were good value for a share of the spoils, but felt goalkeeper Tim Howard was impeded in the dramatic closing stages. The Scot told Sky Sports: "It is a tough place to come and Oldham made it difficult. I think they deserved to get the replay. "But we had great chances to wrap it up when it was 2-1. We missed a couple of big chances to make it 3-1. "I think there is a foul on the goalkeeper on the first corner that comes in. "In most other games in the Premier League that would have been given as a free-kick and it wasn't. "Most of the players have been brought up through this level and we warned them and told them - we have played quite a few games like this, and we have lost quite a few games like this. "So there has to be a bit of credit for how we stuck at it and did the job. "Other teams have come and it has not happened that way. We did and we'll have a second chance to try to get through." Rory Loy put the Cumbrians ahead after 51 minutes before a Liam Walker penalty rescued Pompey a point with 12 minutes left, although the south-coast outfit have now gone 21 games without a victory. Abbott said: "Portsmouth are playing in emotion country at the moment and that's probably what got them the point. "They'll think they deserved it and we're aggrieved we didn't get three. But I'm not complaining too much. "Rory is kicking himself he didn't get a couple more goals or maybe even a hat-trick. "That's the difference between winning and losing games. We feel aggrieved we haven't got the three points, but that's football. You have to get that second goal - it cements victories. We didn't get it. "We had five proper chances to score and our goal didn't come under that much threat."
