Will Pompey's power return at Valley Parade?
Monday, 26th Feb 2018 21:12 by pompey-fans.com staff
Kenny Jackett will be hoping Pompey feel the power at Bradford on Saturday - after bemoaning his team's lack of it in losing to Blackpool.
The Blues got a frosty reception from fans as they limped to a 2-0 defeat to the Seasiders and the Pompey boss said he could understand their frustrations.
Jackett told the News: 'This was game 12, if you like. There’s 12 games to go and we’re all waiting for the big push for the play-offs. As the weeks go on, and I know looking at the table it will still be there, but we can’t lose players at the rate we currently are and necessarily expect to dominate. Supporters have quite rightly turned up like last year hoping the big push is coming towards promotion.
‘We had a big chance in the second half with (Jamal) Lowe which went wide, but as the game went on it looked like we could’ve played all night and we wouldn’t have scored. We had a lot of the ball and play, but they were happy to let us sit in front of them.
‘It looked like they were queueing up to score the second at the back post. In that final period when you want to be coming back at then it didn’t look like happening. We wanted a big finish but probably had too many bodies missing in the final third of the pitch.
‘We couldn’t get our tempo going and, in the end, they did the job. They had genuine power in attacking areas. More power than we had.'
