It has been good and positive news, in the main, with Pompey these past few weeks.

Unfortunately the first bit of ‘bad news’ since Andy Awford took caretaker charge again has come our way today…

Simon Ferry looks like he will miss the rest of the season.

Ferry pulled up early in the win over Dagenham on Saturday, he carried on before eventually he had to come off just before half time – at that stage we all had fingers crossed for him.

Luckily his absence did not cost us in that game but it sounds like he will not play again until next season?

Awford has told the News that he hopes it is not a case of back to ‘square one’ with him though: ‘Simon pulled up after about 20 minutes and then shouted he was okay and it niggled again.

‘It is always a worry with him that we have got to manage him.

‘Should I have played him in such a big game?

‘If we were safe I would have wrapped him up in cotton wool and looked after him a bit, but he is such an important player for us and you see the value of him when he is on the pitch.

‘Hopefully we have caught it early enough so it is not back to square one with him, we will see.’

I think it WAS the right call to play Ferry, as it has been since Awford was able to bring him back so surprisingly against Hartlepool. We saw exactly what he brings to the side in that game, and the games since, and how much we had missed him.

To be honest I think we are ‘just about’ safe now anyway, so it is now important that we get him right and ready for next season.

As the saying goes, as far as the remainder of this one goes, as one door closes another opens…

An opening will now be there for someone else to come in Therry Racon’s chance perhaps?
