Portsmouth have faltered in recent weeks with no win in six severely denting their automatic promotion chances, leading to them falling away to fourth place in League One, now 10 points behind leaders Luton Town.
As Pompey manager Kenny Jackett looks to stop the rot, it would seem that loan striker James Vaughan does not have the answer for his manager, with the 30-year-old failing to make a real impact following his January loan move from Wigan Athletic.
So how will Vaughan be feeling after a lack of game-time at Pompey since arriving?
“He’ll be frustrated.
“I still don’t know why Portsmouth signed him as they already have a number of attacking options available to them this season.
“I’m all for competition for places, but he’ll be rightly frustrated at his lack of game time.”
“I think he will be questioning his decision to move to Fratton Park.
“Having signed when the club were further up the table the expectation would have been to start more and score goals – that hasn’t happened.
“Even with Pompey’s form suffering in recent weeks, game time has been few and far between.
“So you have to wonder if Kenny Jackett regrets signing him after all.”
“He’ll be fuming.
“I’m not even sure where he fits in to be honest.
“I can’t see him as the focal point, the Omar Bogle role, nor as a support striker in a bank of three.
“He’s not going to play much and Pompey are not going up.”
“He’s bound to be frustrated, but this is becoming a regular occurrence.
“Vaughan scores goals, but there’s something not quite right there.
“He will be on the lookout for another club in the summer no doubt.”
