“Pleasing to see some of the ‘understudies’ perform well. That could be the difference between a real promotion push or not in the last three months.”


“I’ll take that result anyday given Pompey’s current form.”


“Sometimes I worry this team is not good enough to be promoted despite the goal scoring hype, but results/performance like this make you think we can do it.”


“Dan Butler was class especially the cross for the equaliser and Idris Kanu also did a very good job. He won a lot of free kicks.”


“Idris Kanu looked good when moved to right wing-back. Ran down the wing at pace. Good performance from him. Thought back 3/5 were good today and limited Pompey to not many chances.”


“Superb performance. We now know what Idris Kanu can do.”


“Good day, excellent game, happy with the result considering the players available.”


“Dan Butler played well and Idris Kanu was also quality at running at defenders.”


“IdrisKanu, Nathan Thompson and Dan Butler stood out for me. Also think Alex Woodyard doesn’t get the credit he deserves.”


“Idris Kanu was excellent and Nathan Thompson was immense and really up for playing against his old team.”


“Good performance, matched up in midfield battle, both full backs played well, Nathan Thompson is a proper defender. Alex Woodyard and Louis Reed both worked well. Best away performance this season.”
