Who wouldn’t have taken a point at Plymouth? Yes, victory was the ultimate aim for Pompey, but avoiding defeat against a promotion rival was a near must, which was achieved.
I’m pretty surprised the game ended 0-0, to be honest. All signs pointed towards Plymouth scoring, then again, that being said, there haven’t been many games where Pompey have failed to find the back of the net in recent months.
Had it not been for a goal-line clearance from Zak Vyner, he saved Plymouth after Jamal Lowe had rounded goalkeeper Kyle Letheren, Pompey would have won it in the last minute. The Blues were denied again before the end when Oscar Threlkeld headed against his own crossbar.
So, a point most definitely could’ve been more. However, I think all things considered we’ll be happy with this result, especially given the fact promotion rivals Charlton and Peterborough both lost.
The unbeaten run goes on, which can only be a good thing heading into the final four games. This was a huge game and to come away from Devon with a point sets us up nicely for Bradford in midweek, when we know victory at Valley Parade, against an out-of-form side, could be enough to move the Blues into the top-six?
