Oxford won’t appeal for Pompey postponement despite international call-ups

Have your say

Doncaster’s Kyle Bennett has caught the eye of new Pompey boss Paul Cook.

The attacking midfielder’s existing Keepmoat Stadium contract ends next month, rendering him a free agent.

And with the two emphatic strikes he scored for the Rovers against Sheffield United last season, it is not difficult to see why he is courting attention.

Despite being right-footed the 24-year-old can play on the left, cutting inside if required.

He did that to devastating effect at Bramall Lane last term in a 3-2 League One loss.

And the Blues now face a fight for his services, with Donny confident they can retain the former England under-18 international with a new deal.
