Top two is place to be - and stay, says Pompey keeper

It's nice to be in the top two but it means nothing right now. So says Craig MacGillivray after Pompey were held to a goalless draw by Fleetwood at Fratton Park but still moved up to second.
MacGillivray was called upon to make sharp saves at the beginning and end of the game but Pompey had the best of the game and night easily have taken the three points.
The keeper told the official website afterwards: 'There was only one team in the second half that really looked like they were going to win the game. About 20 minutes from the end, you could see them slowing things down and trying to buy set-pieces to see if they could nick something that way.
'We were still trying to play on the front foot and get after them, but it’s still a point that keeps us on this run and it’s another clean sheet. Fleetwood got a soft free-kick at the end and their guy’s made a good connection, but thankfully I managed to get it around the post.
'But that was the only thing I can remember having to do in the second half and the result gives us a platform to build on.
'It’s nice to be there (in the top two), but we want to make sure that we’re in those top two places come the end of the season. At the minute, it’s just about collecting as many points as we can. We want to keep plugging away during this busy period.
'Everyone’s been looking at these games because of the positions are opponents are in, but we have to make sure we’re at it for every one.'
Pomney go to face leaders Hull on Friday night. The winners will be top of the table at Christmas.
