Pompey have brought in goalkeeping cover after signing David Cornell on a one-month loan deal from Swansea.

Paul Jones has played every minute of the season so far, but his deputy, Michael Poke, has been sidelined with a back problem in recent weeks.

That has left 17-year-old Academy prospect Alex Bass as the only other goalkeeper at the club and boss Andy Awford has moved to ensure he now has cover.

Awford said: ‘We needed to bring in a keeper because Michael has been suffering with back spasms and we’re grateful to Swansea for lending us David.’
