What a maiden campaign in League One the Irishman has enjoyed. The fee of 100,000 has been a bargain for Pompey, with Curtis scoring 12 goals and creating a further 15. Hes been crucial for Kenny Jacketts troops.

Our Pompey writer Will Rooney has picked his XI, including a bench of players who have caught the eye this season.

Pompeys Craig MacGillivray and Sunderlands Jon McLaughlin have enjoyed superb seasons. But Adam Davies deserves to be between the sticks. He has recorded 18 clean sheets so far, with his form earning him a maiden cap for Wales.
The 22-year-old has been key for champions-elect Luton. The Hatters 4-4-2 diamond formation makes Staceys role pivotal for the system to work. His prowess in the final third has yielded two goals and seven assists for Luton.

His Checkatrade Trophy final performance underlined why many regard him as the best defender in the division. Strong in the air, rock solid in the challenge and and his trademark forays forward make him almost unplayable.
Sonny Bradley and Liam Lindsay could have been in the side, but Pinnock just edges it. He has been superb for Barnsley, helping them to a clean sheet at Fratton Park in February and underpinning their promotion push.
Just like team-mate Stacey, Justin has been pivotal during Luton's title charge with three goals and five assists. He's attracted Premier League scouts to run the rule over him and will be highly coveted in the summer.
The on-loan Leeds winger has enjoyed a fine campaign at the Keepmoat Stadium. Hes scored 13 goals and created five goals for Doncaster and surely will be playing in the Championship next term.
The youngster has proved a gem of a signing for Doncaster. Unheard of when he arrived on loan from Liverpool, the 20-year-old has all the attributes youd want in a midfielder. Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with his progress.
Although hes not the most popular in the PO area, Mowatt has been pivotal in the Tykes engine room. He's full of energy and tenacity, while he makes things tick for Daniel Stendels side on the ball.
The marksman scored one of the goals of the season in front of the Fratton End in October. If it wasnt for his 19 goals this campaign, Gillingham would likely find themselves closer to the relegation zone than they currently are.
The League One top scorer has to go into the team. Hes netted 21 times for Luton this campaign, including a double in their 3-2 victory over Pompey in January.
Despite Pompey putting five past him in December, the Cod Army keeper has amassed 15 clean sheets this term - a fine tally for a side 10th in the table.
Ronan Curtis has tormented plenty of full-backs this term but Johnson wasnt one of them. The right-back kept him fairly quiet during Octobers 1-1 draw, while Stanley turned down a bid from Preston for him in January.
Caught the eye during Pompeys 1-0 FA Cup second-round win at Spotland in December. The ex-Liverpool mans range of passing and composure on the ball caused the Blues problems, while hes also operated as a centre-back this term.
The on-loan West Ham midfielder has caught the eye, impressing in their win over Pompey last month. Cullen has earned a breakthrough to the Republic of Ireland senior set-up and is targeting a regular Hammers place next season.
The 22-year-old is still raw but has plenty of potential. He has pace, low centre of gravity and array of tricks make him difficult for full-backs to mark.
Its usually Graham Carey who gains all the plaudits for the Pilgrims, but Lameiras has proved more potent in the final third this term. Hes out of contract this summer and there will be plenty of potential suitors interested.
What a campaign the Fratton fans' favourite has had. Whether he's been in the No10 role, on the wing or deeper in midfield, Pompey have been able to rely on him. His 12 goals and nine assists show the success he'd had this term.
