Reserves end with a win - and news on Nugent

Reserves end with a win - and news on Nugent

Pompey ended, what has quite frankly been an abysmal season as far as the reserves are concerned with a victory, and a late one at that against Fulham last night - winning 1-0.

Danijel Subotic scored the injury time winner for Pompey, starting in a side that included Noe Pamarot - back from his hamstring injury, Richard Hughes, Lucien Aubey and Martin Cranie.

There was however an injury scare for Pompey - which could be a massive blow ahead of this weekends premier league fixture with Fulham as well as the FA cup final - as Dave Nugent, who was scheduled to start alongside Subotic, had to withdraw after feeling what is described as 'a slight twinge in his groin'.

Early thoughts, and I must stress they are merely fears as it could have been a very wise precautionary measure, are that he might have aggravated the injury that kept him out for two months and had been troubling him all season...

Pompey 1 - Subotic 90
Fulham 0

Begovic; Pamarot, Cranie (c), Ward, Aubey; Ritchie, Christophe, Hughes, Blackman; Subotic, Cowan-Hall
Subs not used: Smith, Pack, Kilbey, Hassani

Well he doesn't want to ruin his chances of a place on the bench at Wembley, does he?

you may well jest matt but if he is ruled out we might not be laughing if we are left in a position were we have little or no options at all...

There is always Subotic to sit on the bench. He may be young but if we need an option then surely he is it if Nugent can't play

Frightening thought isn't it, that we are sooooo short of options up front.

No way is Subotic a bench option - he's only scored once in 6 reserve matches and has zero league experience. I've had this sneaking feeling that Nuge is going to get the winner on May 17 - half fit or not!

I bet Nugent does it on the 17th as well. Wouldn't that be grand?

On this day in history...30th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
