Goalkeeping issue?

Goalkeeping issue?

Pompey could have to contend with a potential goalkeeping quandary against Bradford at the weekend after Luke McGee suffered a quad injury in defeat against Blackburn on Saturday.

According to the News 'the Blues No1 missed training with the rest of his Blues team-mates today' and will now undergo a scan on his injury.

The severity of McGee's problem isn't going to be known 'until later this week.'

McGee has been a virtual ever present since his arrival from Tottenham in the summer but should this setback sideline him Alex Bass could be in line to make his league debut - I'm pretty sure he didn't turn out for Pompey in League Two - for the Blues at Fratton Park this weekend?

However, Kenny Jackett could make an emergency loan signing, which is permitted when it comes to a 'goalkeeping crisis.' Then again this is getting a little ahead of ourselves isn't it, let's see what the scan shows first.

Worthy of a new deal?

So, Danny Rose, as we know, isn't going to play again this season. As things stand this would mean he'll not pull on a Pompey shirt again as his contract expires in the summer.

Sickening Rotherham winner

Losing on Saturday was bad enough, the fact this was an added time winner more so. The cherry on the cake was the fact Rotherham's goal came from ex-Pompey full back Joe Mattock.
