Danny Cowley made it two wins from two in charge of Portsmouth as his side picked up a crucial three points at Shrewsbury Town this afternoon.
Pompey were outstanding in the first half at the New Meadow, with goals from Marcus Harness and John Marquis putting them two up at the break, which reflected their dominance.
However, the hosts pulled one back shortly in the second half, and a red card for Marquis ensured a nervy finish for Cowley’s side.
They would hold on though, with the result leaving the south coast outfit fifth in the League One table in the battle for a play-off finish.
The manner of this victory impressed the fans, as they were delighted to see the free flowing football then backed up by grit and determination to seal the win.
Did these 17 Portsmouth players ever actually score a league goal for the club?
Therefore, many are already calling for Cowley to be offered a long-term contract and here we look at some of the reaction to the boss from Twitter…
Wasted 2 seasons with the #pompey dinosaur in charge, in 2 games we have seen more football, passion and flair than the previous 4…

Note the difference. Red card v Lincoln we had every one behind ball. Today we still pressed and had a threat. Completely different mindset. #pup
