Craig MacGillivray has been superb between the sticks for Pompey since he arrived from Shrewsbury in the summer; praise has constantly come his way as the season has unfolded.

However, it’s his celebrations when the Blues hit the back of the net that has also endeared him to the Fratton faithful.

The “Craig Cam” was in action again at the weekend as Oli Hawkins’ header, which of course proved to be the winner, hit the back of the net against Fleetwood on Saturday.

That was about the limit of his afternoon’s activity as MacGillivray didn’t have to exert himself much more than that against the Cod Army, to be fair.

What a goalkeeper, eh? Still seen, which is hard to argue against, as the best keeper Pompey have had since David James, also one who can help us continue the push towards the Championship.

Speaking of seeing it again, which hopefully we will MacGillivray’s celebration at Fratton Park against Burton this evening, all being well we’ll see Dion Donohue spraying the ball around again like this.

What a ball!

I wasn’t so sure Donohue would make much of an impact of the first team this season; well, besides being a squad player. But, in fairness, he’s had a decent impact since his return from injury a few weeks back, which had previously kept him out of the side.

Finally, as a wrap up a little something that’s a bit of this and a bit of that, ahead of Burton tonight – and before I go to work – the FA Cup first round draw, of course, took place on Monday evening.

I’ll have more on this later in the week.
