What a start to the season, eh?

Yes, the football hasn’t always been the most attractive, by all accounts, but going by the “we live in a results-based business” school of thought, Pompey are certainly getting them under Kenny Jackett in the early throws of the 2018-19 campaign.
Where’s the Jackett haters now – class boys

Bristol Rovers was another was another difficult game for Pompey, especially away. However, having taken a first-half lead through Gareth Evans a victory was looking good, once again.
That was until a penalty was conceded by Ronan Curtis, giving Bristol Rovers a chance to level late on, which was taken when Chris Lines converted from the spot. Minutes later, the Pirates’ hero became the villain though when he was sent off.
Pompey wouldn’t be denied – something that benefited my pre-match flutter too – and when summer Curtis, via a looping deflection over the goalkeeper, struck his third goal in as many games to secure the points with a couple of minutes to play.
I think it’s safe to say these people were pleased with the points.
Great result. Well played through the team. #coalescing

Curtis might have scored the winner, but the part Craig MacGillivray again played wasn’t lost on this tweeter.
Great save from @macgillivray93 to keep it at 2-1. Another fine performance! Well done all.

So, four out of four, only three goals conceded and 12 points on the board… I think we’ll take that, right?
PLAY UP POMPEY
