Whilst, I think it would be fair, to say that few stood out in the draw with Derby I would agree with Jonathan Hogg being named the man of the match.
I did not see the QPR game, although he was fairly impressive in that game too by all accounts, he was most definitely MUCH better than his debut against Burnley - then again, to be fair, everyone was poor that night too!
The on loan Villa man, as he told The Pompey Site, was happy with his performance and felt he grew into the game as Pompey did, especially in the 2nd half.
Although he said that there is till plenty more to come from him the more he adapts to life on the south coast: 'once we got the ball down and passed it I got involved in the game a bit more.
'However, I think there's still better to come from me the more I train with the boys. I've only had one session with them so far so I'm still getting used to them and the surroundings.
'The more I play with the boys the more confident I'll get.'
'Boss Hogg', as I think I will affectionately call him - those of my generation will know Boss Hogg from The Dukes of Hazard, knows that we were nowhere near the level that we needed to be in the 1st half but we put things right.
Following our 2nd half dominance he thought we 'could have possibly nicked another at the end'.
Even so, we will take the point as it could have been worse: 'it could have been worse if we'd lost but we got the equaliser and hopefully we can push on next week, full of confidence, and get all three points.'
I like what I am seeing from Boss Hogg, and if he continues in this manor I have little doubt that I will continue to like the guy, as will most others.
Mike Field, from Vital Villa, said that we would see a lot more from the 22-year-old and he would impress us and I cannot say I disagree with Mike so far.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
