Pompey progress is clear to see
Tuesday, 5th Dec 2017 23:00 by staff

Kenny Jackett can see Pompey progress.

He believes his squad may have taken their time to adjust to life in League One but are now showing real signs of getting to grips with the division.

Having won three of their last four games in the league, the Blues go to Charlton on Saturday in good spirits and Jackett told The News: ‘I think we can see progress. Confidence is hard-earned and many of those games have been very tight, as was the run of losses we had before that.

‘If we are looking at our season so far, there have been 24 goals conceded in 20 games. Okay it’s not bad, but we would like to get that down to in and around a goal a game. If you can get under that then great.

'Wigan’s defensive tally of 12 goals against so far is excellent and rightly gives them a platform at the top of the league. We feel slightly improved. We have been heavily reliant on Brett Pitman’s goals, which is good. He will be back for us and we will continue making him chances and putting him in positions where he can keep scoring.

‘We do feel we have targeted the right areas and made decent strides, but if we end up where we want to be then we’ll have to improve again.’

Meanwhile Pompey Academy's FA Youth Cup run is over - they were unfortunate to lose 2-1 to Leicester after extra time at Fratton.
