Portsmouth battled to a hard-fought victory over Bolton on Saturday, as they climbed ever closer to the top six.
Pompey rode their luck at times but a solitary goal from Christian Burgess means that the side sit outside of the play-offs on goal difference.
Kenny Jackett is currently enduring a good run of form from his side and there’s no reason why the club can’t compete for a place in the Championship come the end of the campaign.
It wasn’t the prettiest of performances from the side but in the end three points were guaranteed to go back to the south-coast on Saturday.
The team has tried to be more attacking in recent weeks and Ellis Harrison started upfront with John Marquis on Saturday, although both failed to get on the scoresheet.
Here’s how Portsmouth supporters reacted to yet another victory that pushed them ever closer to their aim…

What good changes just after half time. People shouldn't think Bolton are easy targets cos they low in the table. As shown recently the teams at the bottom are more fieces than those at the top, same as those just off playoffs. Because they have something to play for. #PuP (c) 😛

A wins a win but hopefully before this season is out these players will finally give us some entertaining positive play to be enthralled about instead of always feeling like we're barely scraping by and riding our luck. Good run of results but the performances are just awful.

That’s really encouraging in that it was reminiscent of our away performances last season. Nick a goal and find a way to keep the Ball out at our end. We’ve put a few de tent away results together now 💪
