Cameron McGeehan has said that Portsmouth are “on the up” as Saturday’s 2-0 win over Sunderland extended the club’s winning run to eight games in all competitions.
The central midfielder, who joined Pompey in January from Barnsley on a loan deal until the end of the season, has said the positive results for the club in recent weeks has given the team added belief.
“There’s real confidence running right through the group because we’re getting big wins against big sides,” he told the club’s official website.
“There’s a really strong togetherness in this squad and that’s what you need to have in a successful team.”

Pompey’s comfortable win over Sunderland moved the Hampshire side back into the top six, and the 24-year-old added that he wants the team to keep up their good recent form in order to strengthen their promotion hopes.
“We’ve had some really positive results in recent weeks and you need them to keep coming in order to build more momentum,” McGeehan said.
“It’s a really good time to be hitting that run of form that you need at this stage of the season. The club’s in a good place.”
Two tough away games now await Pompey, starting this coming Saturday against Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on a notoriously difficult pitch.
The side then travel to St. Andrew’s to face Coventry City three days later. Pompey also have two games in hand on Rotherham and Wycombe, who both occupy the automatic promotion positions.
McGeehan has excelled at Pompey during his short spell at the club so far, proving to be an excellent addition for Kenny Jackett’s side.
The 24-year-old featured for the full ninety minutes against Sunderland, with the win lifting the south coast side two points clear of the Black Cats in the table.
With an unbeaten record so far in 2020, Pompey will hope that this rich vein for form continues for the foreseeable future.
