Why Pompey defender will be relishing chance to graft for Cowley

Sean Raggett is set to be one of many Pompey players to benefit from the arrival of Danny and Nicky Cowley - and he has more reason than most to know what to expect.
The Cowleys took the central defender to Lincoln in 2016 - and his progress was so rapid he was picked up by Norwich a year later.
The Fratton fans' jury is out on Raggett, with some believing he can be a liability at the back, but Danny Cowley is excited to be working with the defender again.
The manager told The News: ‘Sean’s an incredible competitor. I have been lucky enough to work with some really good resilient, robust boys and he is right up there, let me tell you. We are going to work really hard here, we have an ambition to play higher in this division and our aim is to make the players better.
‘We give the provision, but the players have to buy into it. It’s always the players who deserve the credit for any improvement they make. Sean made huge, huge strides in our last time together. We brought him from non-league and sold him to Norwich in 12 months, before getting him back on loan as part of the deal.
‘Our aim is to have the same impact on him this time that we did back then. He really did develop at an incredible rate the last time we worked together.’
