Jackett feels Kennedy is a player Pompey need to feed the ball to as often as possible.

That will see him causing worries for opposing defences.

Jackett said: ‘He played well against Gillingham. The more we can give him the ball the better really.

‘He can go either side and he’s been good for us.

‘I’ve been pleased with him so far and the more we can get the ball to him the better.

‘He’ll be a danger man for us.’
