Pompey boss: Youngster can prove critics wrong

Have your say

Guy Whittingham has been nominated for the League One manager of the month award for March.

The Pompey caretaker boss has been short-listed for the award along with Walsall’s Dean Smith and Leyton Orient’s Russell Slade.

The Blues ended their 23-game winless at Crewe and went on to pick up three wins and two draws last month in an excellent turnaround.

The only defeat came at Leyton Orient in a game Slade admitted Pompey deserved to win.

Pompey are currently in the midst of a run of just a single defeat in nine games, despite the club’s continuing problems off the pitch.

The winner of the award will be announced on Friday.
