Portsmouth get welcome injury boost

Bryn Morris is yet to make an appearance this season, but the Portsmouth midfielder is on the comeback trail.

Having joined Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth in January this year, Bryn Morris’ career on the south coast hasn’t exactly gone to plan. The defensive midfielder has made just seven appearances since arriving at Fratton Park, and is yet to make a single one this season due to injury.

The 23-year-old is suffering from a persistent groin injury which kept him out of pre-season too. But last week Morris returned to first-team training, and could be in for his first appearance of the 2018/19 League One campaign this month – as per the Portsmouth News.

He arrived at Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee at the start of 2019, and in his first half-season made seven appearances and scored one goal for the club, his last appearance coming in May. Morris had spent the first half of last season on-loan at Wycombe Wanderers from Shrewsbury Town, where he made 21 appearances scoring four times, before securing the move to Portsmouth.

The verdict

Jackett will be looking forward to Morris’ return. Pompey have struggled in League One this season, sitting in 19th after eight games. It will give Pompey some much-needed steel in the middle of the park, and his regular habit of scoring goals will be useful too if Jackett’s side are to climb back up the table.
