Plenty of Portsmouth fans have sent messages to striker John Marquis after the summer-signing added another goal to his season tally on Tuesday night as Kenny Jackett’s men saw off Lincoln City 2-0.
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.
Scoring at the Fratton end wouldn’t go a miss but great feeling last night! 🙈😂 Good result & clean sheet last night & amazing support for a Tuesday game so far away. @RonanCurtis1 on 🔥 & another big one on Saturday! #ComeOnG #PUP 💙🔵 https://t.co/tIUVEUopPE

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 former Doncaster man has not had the easiest of seasons so far but has now found the net eight times in all competitions.
And after Marquis sent a post-match message, including his desire to score at the Fratton End some time soon, loads of fans reacted…
Saturday, Fratton End, header. Thank me later.
