Spirit got Pompey through against Burton - but can it carry on aiding them?

Pompey's win over Burton was just a start - but at least it was that.
The 2-1 victory on Tuesday night was their first since mid-December and followed a wretched run of results in January and a heartbreaking 3-2 defeat at Oxford last weekend.
Goals from Sean Raggett and Michael Jacobs brought three welcome points against the Brewers and Pompey are looking for a repeat of that outcome when Doncaster visit on Saturday.
Midfielder Louis Thompson, one of the stars of the show against Burton, told the club website: 'We needed that Burton result massively after an unfortunate result on the previous Saturday, when we showed a lot of fight and spirit. That Oxford game almost felt like a bit of a turning point, though, because it galvanised all the boys and we showed real character.
'A lot was against us, but we stuck together and showed real spirit, which helped us get three points against Burton. Hopefully we can use the result as a springboard for the weeks to come. It can certainly stand us in good stead.
'There are certainly things that we can add to our performance, but it was a good start and one we want to build on against Doncaster. We know we have to win football matches if we want to reach our goals – regardless of who the opposition is.
'So we’ll adopt a positive mindset and the fans will be behind us again, which is always a massive help.'
