Key Portsmouth figure delivers message to fans



Portsmouth director of football Eric Eisner has sent a personal message after the club picked up yet another win on Tuesday night away to Lincoln City.

It was their seventh win on the spin in all competitions as they continue their resurgence following a slow start to the third-tier season.

But now sat inside the play-off places, there is a real sense of momentum surrounding Fratton Park.

Taking to Twitter, Eisner wrote: “3 more points in the league. Clean sheet. All around solid team win. Promises to be a proper atmosphere Saturday back at Fratton. Let’s keep it rolling!!”

QUIZ: Can you name these 14 Portsmouth players just by looking at the clubs they have played for?

1 of 14

Which Portsmouth player is this? (Appearances): Doncaster Rovers (153), Millwall (65), Northampton Town (29), Gillingham (21)

After a slow start Pompey took the lead right on the stroke of half-time when Ronan Curtis belted home a delicious free-kick in injury time – what turned out to be the final kick of the half.

Tom Hopper and Conor Coventry both had opportunities to level in the second half, but neither could convert their respective opportunities.

And with three minutes remaining, Kenny Jackett’s men made the points safe. January signing Steve Seddon was fouled in the box, with Marquis stepping up to make no mistake.

The verdict

He is acting very professionally in the public eye but in private I am sure the Eric and his dad are feeling rather smug about their decision to stick with Kenny Jackett .

They were coming under enormous pressure to sack the former Millwall and Wolves boss but they were always determined to stick by him, and now it is paying off.

Pompey lost a few key men in the summer so their slow start pehaps shouldn’t have been as big a surprise. And you get the feeling that they are really starting to find their stride.
