Well, it has been another of those periods – which seem common these days, for various reasons – where I’ve had very little time, so I’ve not really been able to put much out on this site. I hate it when that happens, as writing gives me the release I need, but what can you do if time is against you…

Anyway, four points from games against Fleetwood and Burton wasn’t a bad return. However, Tuesday’s draw – in the second of our Fratton Park double header – against the Brewers feels like points dropped in many ways, right?

Now attention is starting to shift towards the trip to Accrington on Saturday, which will be another big game for Pompey and a potential indication of our true promotion credentials, at least possibilities.

Pompey’s away form has been awesome this season, so far. As we all know, we’re yet to taste defeat on our travels, in fact, the Blues are often winning when we hit the road. If this away form could be mirrored at home the Blues would streak away with League One. Taking said form into account, confidence is likely to be high again on Saturday I would think?

Yes, dropped points at Fratton Park will always be disappointing, after all, points on your home patch are seen as the bread and butter.

That being said, if we can get through another week without defeat, which has included two difficult home games and the upcoming one at Accrington, that isn’t going to be too shabby.

So, it wouldn’t be bad if we came through these games with five points, would it? If, not that I’m expecting it, we can win at Stanley a seven-point haul would be great, easily making up for those dropped against Burton.

PLAY UP POMPEY

  • At the time watching the game I was shocked with the turn around in the second half as we played some very good exciting football in the first half, It is starting to look like Ray Hiron has returned with Oli Hawkins hitting form, On balance Burton deserved the point for their second half performance, Lets hope Thompson is fit for Accrington as both the Tottenham boys need to improve to get back in this side, Onwards and Upwards back to the Championship where we belong.

  • Was thinking we’d only get a point or two from the last two home games so 4 is better than hoped for. I thought we played well enough 2nd half to win by more on Saturday and it’s disappointing we couldn’t make it more comfortable but relieved we actually won. Conor Chaplin is scoring a few for Cov and I’m sure he should be back at Pompey because we need someone sticking the ball away with Pitman struggling to get in the team now. I still believe Sunderland will finish top as they just seem unstoppable and with a gigantic budget, with us playoffs or maybe second, but only if we become more ruthless. We play them just before Christmas and hopefully we will be up to the challenge.
