Exclusive: Michael Brown discusses recent setback for Portsmouth

Portsmouth will have to wait a while to get over their 3-3 draw with Coventry in midweek with there being no game for them this weekend.

Pompey were 3-1 up and cruising against the Sky Blues who, eventually, were down to nine men.

They did, however, end up drawing the fixture and that caused some corners of the support to wonder whether Kenny Jackett was the right man to get Pompey up into the Championship this season.

Certainly, he’ll want to quickly get back to action as soon as possible to put that draw behind him and, for Michael Brown, he will get time to do exactly that.

Speaking to Football League World exclusively, the former midfielder said:

“I think you’ve got to look at where that club has come from and where they have recovered from.

“They had a good season last year and they have got ambitious owners with exciting plans and they seem to understand their roles and be patient with things judging by their reaction to what happened last season, so I don’t think they’ll be quick to see Kenny go this season.

“They accepted that in sport that things don’t always go to plan straight away. The result that they had in the week the supporters will not allow. To be playing a side with nine men and for them to then come back is not good enough but there’s plenty of time left to go.

“They had to go Sunderland recently and that’s obviously tough and the pressure is on because the fans demand promotion and I would say them and Sunderland are the favourites. Kenny Jackett has experience and he’ll understand the criticism that has come his way but he’ll be able to deal with it.”
