Once again, Craig MacGillivray was denied a clean sheet on Saturday. Not that he could do much about James Hanson’s second-half goal for Wimbledon.

For a third week running a “worldie” was among the goals to beat the Pompey goalkeeper. MacGillivray is certainly getting a little tired of these goals going against him, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by others too.

As a ‘keeper, MacGillivray would always want a clean sheet, but the Kingsmeadow win was the main thing.

A clean sheet or not, MacGillivray’s still a “badass” goalkeeper.

Do we dare turn thoughts towards promotion? Well, it’s hard not to given the way things have started, but to be honest it’s still too soon. However, we’ve got to have aspirations to achieve this.

Good goal, bad goal, it doesn’t really matter, in many ways, what it’s like when they go in against us. However, I don’t think MacGillivray can be blamed for many, if any, of the goals he’s conceded so far during his Pompey career, can he?

If he can maintain his form between the sticks and the outfield players do their jobs then, as much as we’ve got to be careful not to get carried away, the Championship could soon be welcoming the Blues back… oh please, let us hope so.
