'If It's Football, It's Vital'

There's a spirit building!

Had a point been offered to us ahead of our trip to Tranmere on Saturday I do not think that many would have turned that down would they?

Given the fact that we were behind not once, but twice, this point would have been even more accepted!

Joint caretaker manager Guy Whittingham, as he told Radio Solent, was definitely happy with it.

A 'spirit building' has also been revealed: 'to twice go a goal down and to come back again shows that there's a spirit building.

'On the back of those seven defeats it's nice to know the lads have still got a lot of fight in them and haven't given up.'

That, following a long old break, makes it a couple unbeaten for us and if this could have been the case ahead of the games at Coventry and Tranmere again I think most would have taken that even if both were draws - although, in both games, we have fought back from behind to earn these draws so happy days!

Either side could have won the game in the end, with chances falling at both ends in the closing stages but a fantastic save from Simon Eastwood at the death ensured we got a 2-2 draw.

Whittingham, quite rightly, has highlighted this: 'it was a great save (by keeper Simon Eastwood) at the end.

'When you get to the end of a game people are tired but he kept us in the game in the last five minutes and gave us the opportunity to have a chance ourselves.'

Yep, more than happy with this so bring on Preston as we make our long awaited Fratton return at the weekend, by the time this game comes around we will know the score with the court case at the tail end of this week too...

Pompey are definitely at a stage where we need people that 'get Pompey' in charge of us, and also people that 'understand what Pompey is all about' - quite clearly both Whittingham and Andy Awford get this and are what we need at this juncture.
