Sure Enough It Happened


What did I say before Coventry? I was “confident” it would go well, but wasn’t “expecting a win.” However, I “wouldn’t be surprised” if it happened.

Sure enough, it did!

Ronan Curtis’ strike – what a signing he’s been – at the end of the first half was enough to secure Pompey the points in a 1-0 win at the Ricoh Arena.

Not only did this maintain our unbeaten record, but the victory also allowed us to keep the top spot. In fact, Pompey extended the advantage over Peterborough to three points and, albeit early days, opened up a bit of daylight between us and third-placed Doncaster, to six.

It’s too early to be celebrating a return to the Championship, but the early season form, without a doubt the results, suggests the Blues could be in for a very exciting campaign that may well result in another promotion? Yes, please.

But there’s no reason why we shouldn’t relish our current position and enjoy it.

I’m already looking forward to the next game at the weekend – Gillingham’s visit to Fratton Park isn’t going to be easy but there shouldn’t be any fear shown.
