Portsmouth defender Sean Raggett has stated that the records the club are breaking mean nothing unless the side can go on and get promotion.
Pompey have been in brilliant form in recent months and have won their last nine games in all competitions, the first time they have achieved such a feat since they entered the Football League in 1920.
That run has seen the club move up to fifth in the League One table, as well as earn an FA Cup fifth round tie with Arsenal at Fratton Park.
Raggett insisted that the records do not matter at all unless Kenny Jackett’s side go on and get promotion and revealed the current feeling inside the camp.
Speaking to the Portsmouth News, Raggett said: “One of the lads said about the record in the dressing room afterwards.
“The records are nice but they won’t mean anything unless we go on and get promotion.
“Everyone’s buzzing and it just doesn’t feel like we’re going to lose.”
Can you get 100% in this Portsmouth quiz? Have a go now!
He’s spot on, it has been an absolutely brilliant run but if they fall short of being promoted to the Championship then few will remember it.
Raggett and the side have to ensure that come May, they are a team that is preparing for life in a higher division otherwise they will surely look back on the season with regrets.
Pompey also have two games in hand on second-placed Wycombe Wanderers so there is strong potential for a push for automatic-promotion, if they can do that then it would be a season to remember at Fratton Park.
It should be an interesting few months at the club, beginning with the midweek clash against fourth-placed Coventry City.
