Portsmouth resolve delights assistant as they close gap on League One leaders against Shrewsbury
Joe Gallen praised Pompey for toughing out a return to winning ways against Shrewsbury.
Pompey eventually broke down the Shrews’ stubborn rearguard action, however, and the character they showed in doing so pleased Gallen.
He said: ‘It was a tough game in the conditions.
‘It’s not so much the rain but wind can affect a game of football. That was the case for both teams.
‘So we’re pleased to win against a tough opponent in Shrewsbury.
‘They played well and defended well but we kept going and got our chances.’
