Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett has praised his side following their pulsating victory at Blackpool, in an interview with the club’s official website.
Jackett’s side came out on top in the topsy-turvy affair, with victory firing Pompey just three points shy of a playoff spot.
With the game goalless at half time, both sides came out firing, with Jackett and Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer’s men exchanging blows, before Pompey top scorer Brett Pitman bagged his second of the game in the 86th minute to send the visitors home with the spoils.
The win delighted the former Millwall and Wolves boss, who said: “It’s been a pleasing week, a big win away from home in the Checkatrade and today most importantly in the league.”
“The player’s have shown a lot of character, and showed a lot of quality.”
“It was a big win today.”
Having lost four games in a row, including three in the league and an FA Cup defeat to League Two Luton Town, Jackett will be delighted with the week his side have had.
Victory over Charlton in the Checkatrade Trophy has restored belief to the beleaguered side, who are now back on track in the league following the impressive win at Blackpool.
Portsmouth are a big club with a huge, expectant fan base, and Jackett will realise how badly Pompey fans crave another successive promotion.
The squad is in place to achieve this, most visibly through the playoffs, and the south coast side should be there or thereabouts by the end of the season.
Pompey fans, is another promotion a realistic target? Have your say below…
