'You crack on Kenny... what a statement... best performance of season' - Portsmouth fans react to victory over Sunderland
Pompey fans have been having their say on the Blues’ 2-0 win over Sunderland.
And it appears those one-time critics of the manager are starting to change their tune as the Fratton Park side moved above Sunderland in the table to cement their place in the League One play-off positions.
Goals either side of half-time from Christian Burgess and James Bolton earned Pompey their eighth win on the bounce and a key victory over one of their main promotion rivals.
Here’s how fans marked the occasion on our Facebook page – Portsmouth FC The News – and how some are changing their opinion on the once under-fire manager...
Luke Hurren: Jackett man of the match and deserved for two reasons.
1. Selections and substitutions perfect.
2. Cannot pick a best player out of that lot.
All of them ten out of ten. I was Jackett out 3 months ago, I firmly sit back down and shut up. You crack on Kenny.
Andy Skelton: Best performance of the season... Keep it up lads.
Tom Haustead: Wow talk about making a statement.
I was fully expecting a very close, tight game (and the first half was).
In the end I don’t think they could have complained if we had scored 5 or 6, we were an absolute level above.
4 points off 2nd with 2 in hand now and we are starting to see performances to match the results we have been getting for quite a while now.
Christopher Allison: We have really improved over the last few games, and played brilliant today. PUP.
Perry Groves: Brilliant performance today, well done fellas all worked hard and the football we are starting to play looks like a team that wants out the league.
Anthony Knight: Excellent win today... keep it going… automatics there for the taking. I’ve been one of Jackett’s biggest critics… but I’m starting to warm to him now… got to keep it going PUP
Zac Newnham: Great result!! Need to keep this momentum, wouldn’t mind a few goals from open play, Marquis from outside 12 yrds would be great.
Harry Wood: It was an awesome performance. Credit to Jackett and the lads, PUP.
Jim Beck: Excellent win and we go from strength to strength.
We done to all and now very close to top 2.
John P Dolden: Great performance from the team, and great to get goals from Christian and James pup ppu
