Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett has revealed the key reason behind the club’s upturn in form, ahead of the club’s upcoming league game against Coventry City on Tuesday night.
Pompey had a slow and difficult start to the campaign, and were in the bottom half of the table for the first few months of the season.
