Just when we think we have seen it all from Pompey this season, and we quite literally have once again, we go and pull another rabbit out of the hat!
We manage some miracle fightback to draw 4-4 at Bury.
By all accounts the draw was one of the least entertaining 4-4 draws you could witness! But hats off to the players, coaching staff and fans once again for the part played in the fight back from three-nil down to get it back to three-two and then four-two down to get the point with a couple of late goals. Three of our goals came in the final 10-minutes...
This point kept Andy Awford's unbeaten run, during this latest caretaker spell, in tact.
Should Awford, in the coming days, not see his name among the four nominees for the league two manager of the month for April then there is something very, very wrong with the selection panel.
Dare I go as far as saying that if he does not win this the judges are wrong?!
A record of 4 wins and a draw, with it an incredible fightback draw at that, coupled with the win at the end of last month makes Pompey the most inform side in the division and quite possibly in the country in recent weeks so having come in when we were going only one way to not only 'steady the ship' but set sail for warmer climes how could he be beaten to this award.
How can he not be appointed manager too...
Granted, I do not show as much attention to others in this league as perhaps I should but aside from York cementing a play-off place with a decent run and Northampton getting themselves out of relegation with another weekend I am not sure who could claim a better month than us, and Awford?
York and Northampton have achieved their runs over a far greater period than just a month though so in my mind it is a no brainer and Awford has to be a shoe-in to win an award that is often a 'jinx' when won, but with just a final game of the season to go I reckon he will take a risk with winning.
I also feel that the wave of optimism and buzz around the old girl on Saturday will be enough to carry us to a season ending win over Plymouth - even if not, it will matter little to most with decisions on what will happen as far as attending next season almost certainly made, in the positive, for most anyway.
Ending the season with a win, for us, the club and Awford would be nice mind.
Methinks that, if it is something that can be kept under wraps - always difficult with the News so tight with the club and social media as it is - Saturday could also see the official appointment of Awford?
I reckon announcing this at Fratton Park on the final day of the season would be a nice touch…
PLAY UP POMPEY!
