Pompey have to get to the winning stage - quickly

Pompey fans are desperate for a sharp upturn in form and results for their team - and boss Kenny Jackett says the Blues know improvements are needed quickly.
Ahead of the trip to Burton on Saturday, there's little to cheer supporters after a yield of just two points from the first three games.
Jackett told the Pompey website: 'We’re obviously desperate to be playing again – it’s been a long week after that defeat against Wigan. It would have been great if there had been another Tuesday game and then we could just get on with it.
'But we’ve been constructive in what we’re doing and we want to get that first league win after some frustrating results. We’re not too far away and there have been spells in every match when we’ve been on top, but haven’t been able to crack a 90 minute performance yet.
'It’s true that we haven’t been at our best so far and really want to be putting on a top display from start to finish. I think I’ve got a talented squad and finding the correct balance, getting the combinations right and building up their confidence is what we’ve been talking about.
'The games are now going to start coming thick and fast. It’s something we have to be ready for and we’re looking forward to it. There is still a lot of the season ahead, but of course we’re disappointed with results and are confident we can turn it around.
'We’ve shown before that we can win – consistently and not just on individual days – and have to get to that stage quickly.'
