Manager's Comments

Portsmouth boss Kenny Jacket guided his side to a EFL Trophy last season, the 58-year-old's side are currently one point off the play-off places in 8th.

Jackett spoke to press ahead of Portsmouth's trip to LNER Stadium explaining how he was pleased with his side's performance at the weekend: “I’m pleased to say we took more of the chances in what was quite an open contest, with some very good finishing.

“My thoughts now quickly turn to the league and facing Lincoln on Tuesday, then Sunderland next Saturday.

“But our supporters should be encouraged by the performance and hopefully we can have a really strong finish to the season.

“We’re guaranteed to have played at least 59 games, and that’s without going any further in the cups or being in the play-offs.”
