Jackett wants Pompey to aim for 90-plus points
Thursday, 11th Apr 2019 21:19 by pompey-fans.com staff
Kenny Jackett has challenged Pompey to break the 90-point barrier to give themselves a good chance of finishing in the top two.
The Blues have six games left, starting with the Fratton Park clash with Rochdale on Saturday.
With Barnsley and Sunderland ahead of them at present in the race for the second automatic promotion spot, Jackett knows Pompey have to be at their best in pretty much all the final six games.
He told the club website: 'We’re on 77 points and we’re going to need 90-plus. We know that there’s not much margin for error, but we’re capable of reaching our aim. It is realistic for us to get into the top two and although we don’t need perfection, we need something near it.
'We have to really go for it now – and have a fantastic crowd behind us that we know will back us all the way. At this stage of the season you keep one eye on what else is happening around the country, but the important thing is we maintain our form.
'We’ve suddenly put some wins together to give us some momentum and so we have to keep our foot to the floor.'
