Pompey’s winning run was always going to come to an end at some point, which proved the case on Saturday against Doncaster.

A point at the Keepmoat Stadium, from a 0-0 draw, was a very good one, to be fair. These posters on Twitter agreed.

It goes without saying – facing 10-men for the final minutes when goalkeeper, Marko Marosi, was sent off for the hosts – a fifth successive win was the aim, but show me someone who wouldn’t have taken an away point, against a decent side, before the game and I’ll show you a liar.

That said, not testing the stand-in outfield player, who went in as the ‘keeper more was a surprise though.

Improvement, in terms of performance from Pompey, is needed, we can’t deny this. However, the Blues’ 13 points from a possible 15 to kick things off in this campaign certainly pleases me, that much is certain.

A select few here would agree once more.

August has been good, September will be another tough one, but I can’t see any reason, especially if those performance levels do indeed rise, why we can’t enjoy another positive month. If so, it could leave us well placed as we start looking towards the busy festive period, which will soon be here…
