Tuesday’s clash at Fleetwood was a big game in many ways and it was important for Pompey to get a win coming up against a side in bad form.

I thought we were very unlucky not to get a draw against a decent footballing side in Blackburn.

Kal thinks keeping’s a stroll now – I remember Sandford saying the same!

There’s only one place to start – and that’s with wishing Stephen Henderson a speedy recover from injury.

SHREWSBURY’S manager said the penalty that never was on Saturday was ‘ball to hand’.

Title-winners have given Pompey boss a selection headache

There were one or two lads with a point to prove at Blackpool.
