LEE BROWN has lifted the lid on why Jamal Lowe is a nightmare for opposition full-backs.
The former Bristol Rovers man believes the winger’s pace, power and ability to take defenders into uncomofrtable situations is why he’s such a threat for Pompey.
Lowe has been one of Kenny Jackett’s chief outlets during their League One title charge this season.
The former Hampton & Richmond talent is the Blues’ joint-top scorer with seven goals, while he’s also recorded five assists.
Lowe is blessed with rapid pace and left-back Brown revealed that’s an attribute a lot of defenders don’t like coming up against.
‘Jamal is a threat,’ he said.
‘He is quick, powerful and he is strong.
‘It’s brilliant for me to link up with Ronan Curtis and it’s the same with Nathan Thompson and Jamal on the right-hand side.
‘He’s skilful as well which people don’t really appreciate.
‘A lot of full-backs don’t really like playing at pace.
‘He is causing them a problem – he’s busy and fit and when you’re fit you’ve always got half a chance.’
Brown also believes Lowe’s latest attribute of cutting in from the flank also makes him difficult to nullify.
He added: ‘Jamal has also added cutting inside into his game. Probably a couple of years ago he’d favour knocking it down the wing.
‘But he has added much more creativity to his game by coming inside.
‘When wingers come inside it’s such a hard one to defend as a full-back because you don’t really want to go in there.
‘It’s taking positions into full-backs they really don’t want to venture into. He’s got that with experience, so fair play to him.’
