But the caretaker boss is bracing himself for the inevitable hiccup.

The Blues head into tomorrow’s Bury match after ending their club-record winless sequence at Crewe last Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Portsmouth Supporters’ Trust have made huge strides by obtaining a council loan, while their partner Stuart Robinson has bought Sacha Gaydamak’s land around Fratton Park

For the vast majority of Pompey fans, such developments offer immense encouragement for the future.

Certainly it has given hope to Whittingham as he seeks to make it successive victories for the Blues.

He said: ‘The win at Crewe meant we were able to give people a bit more to smile about on the pitch – in addition to the good news about the Supporters’ Trust at the end of last week.

‘So it just crowned a decent week in the life of Portsmouth Football Club.

‘Rather than the 12 months previously where there were none.

But this is Pompey isn’t it, until it is actually done and dusted you just don’t know.

‘It looked more positive last week, though, especially on the football pitch.

‘If we can keep doing that and making sure people are buoyed and happy with life on the pitch then that might help along the way.’
