We Discovered Who Shouldn’t Take The Next Penalty


So, you’ve yet to open your senior account, goals wise, for your new club, Pompey. A late penalty in a meaningless game – which is how most will view the Checkatrade Trophy – against Crawley has to be the ideal chance to change this, right?

Already a goal up, this was also an opportunity to secure a second win out of two in this competition. However, despite the win coming, regardless, Mason wildly blazed the spot-kick over, much to the delight of the Crawley fans.

Ok, Mason’s career at Fratton Park isn’t going to be defined by that moment and hopefully, the on-loan Wolves forward will soon put that behind him and move on, proving to be a success on the south coast.

His biggest problem, not overcoming the miss, could be forcing himself into the starting XI, which might have seen his chances improved this coming weekend, but for his miss…

Also on that night, we saw a debut for 16-year-old Haji Mnoga, who was obviously delighted.
