Good news for Portsmouth amid battle for the play-offs



Portsmouth defender Jack Watmough returned to action for the first time since September, after making a 45 minute appearance for the reserve side against Leicester.

The 21-year-old has been out since a serious knee injury sidelined him at the start of September, and looked good upon his return to action.

Watmough was solid at the back and could have given Pompey a lead in the first half, but his effort sailed over the bar.

The centre-half is held in extremely high regard by staff at Fratton Park, and his return to action could coincide with Kenny Jackett’s side’s push for the playoffs, with sixth-place Bradford City just five points ahead of the south coast side.

The Verdict

Pompey are well in the mix to record back to back promotions, and the return of Watmough will provide the squad with a huge boost.

The academy graduate has already made 51 league appearances since graduating into the first-team back in 2012, with his form earning him a call up to the England U19 side for a single cap.

Watmough has huge potential and the ability to challenge for a starting spot in the coming weeks, and fans will hope to see him back in action sooner rather than later.
