Pompey Malta on us finally breaking the ‘duck’ of only being able to beat teams who played in golden-kitted colours.
As the Clarets have fallen into defeat against a Pompey side that for once this season did not play exceptionally well, Portsmouth secured the first points against a team who wasn’t playing in golden colours.
Portsmouth’s points have all come against golden-kit teams and winning against a white-shirted Burnley must be more than the much needed 3 points.
Portsmouth’s first win of the season came against Wolves at Molineux, a day we all remember. Then came up Hull, with their traditional colours, and Pompey got another point after a sloppy performance. Wigan, playing in an unusual colour succumbed to defeat against a five-star Pompey side. But for once this season, things were different against the Clarets; winning through goals from Hreidarsson and Dindane.
Hermann Hreidarsson’s after match comments were very encouraging. He said that Pompey might be on to something special. This win might prove that the unthinkable, the unlikely or call it whatever, might have started to happen.
Let us hope that Pompey will move on and gain more points in the fixtures to come against non-golden teams, and perhaps write history once more by doing another great escape, or as we may call it this time; a golden escape.
