Jack Whatmough’s – yes, I know we need a new image – performance was seen as the best one from a Pompey player against Oxford last Sunday.
Having been asked to vote – based on your experience of the game as a watching one at Fratton Park, listening on the radio or viewing the game on Sky Sports – with 48% Whatmough, once again, got this to win the Vital Pompey MotM poll.
What the poll asked – Oxford MotM

Well the local lad has certainly stepped up to the plate since returning from his latest injury hasn’t he! There’s little doubt Whatmough is a huge favourite with the Fratton faithful, as such we all hoped he could return from injury and be the player he was before another setback – the signs in his three outings since suggest he has.
Having been voted as our Man of the Match at Oldham, following an impressive 70-odd minutes return against Gillingham before that, Whatmough again put in a performance to please. However, as hinted earlier in the week I do have a feeling he could soon be given a rest? Much as you want to keep playing those in form.
So, we move onto this into the next phase of the season, the climax of it. Having won back-to-back games we head into the Easter period and, which is somewhat amazing given a mixed 2018 so far, potentially do so knowing we could able to end it back in the top-six, leaving a play-off push within our own hands.
Could we still manage this?! A number of signs point towards us falling short, but two games in three days really could make or break this, couldn’t they?
What the poll is asking – Play-offs still on? If so, will Easter make or break it?
Options to vote – It’s on, but we MUST win both games
No, think we’ll miss out regardless
You know what, I really don’t know!
What do you think?
