2017-18 isle of W - Pompey Kabamba med 5 mål i storejr.

Pompey manager Kenny Jackett havde inden kampen været i medierne været ude og sige at Pompey har en angriber for mange!

Så der var lidt pres på de offensive kræfter, da Pompey tog færgen til Isle of Wight. Pompey stillede med blot tre reserver, hvor den ene var en keeper, så spillerne var klar over at der for de fleste ville være fuld spilletid.

På en fin sommeraften fik de mange fans en del mål, og i pausen diskede et klassik hornorkester op med underholdning. Så jo der var masser af smil hos fansene og ikke mindst spillerne.

Skarp Lalkovic
En del spillere viste sig fornemt frem, Milan Lalkovic var skarp på kanten i Pompeys 4-4-2 opstilling og han var involveret i meget.

Det må siges at det var Jamal Lowe ligeså. Spilleren som Pompey hentede i non league, lavede to mål og var med i en del af de andre mål.

Manden i centrum var dog Nick Kabamba, der lavede hele 5 mål, og eneste der må have været lidt bekymret er Curtis Main, som ikke fik scoret, og nok må se sig bagved Kabamba.

Pompey stillede med et B-hold, og ingen af spillerne fra den forrige træningskamp var med.

For Pompey manager Kenny Jackett må det være særdeles positiv med så bred en trup, hvor mange presser sig på, nu venter to træningskampe mod bedre modstandere og her må det være tæt på Kenny Jacketts start XI der starter.

Assistentmanager Joe Gallen
"There was a very good attitude from our players and it was an extremely professional performance – from start to finish. We saw some great moves and chances created, while some of the finishing was excellent. 

The first three of Nicke’s goals were very clean finishes on a bobbly pitch and he managed to find the net with plenty of power. There were a couple of headers in there as well, which you would expect from someone of his size. But he should be very pleased overall and it should give him a lot of confidence. Scoring five against anyone is good going. We have a lot of forward options and we need competition, so he has to push the likes of Conor Chaplin, Brett Pitman and Kal Naismith.

“Perhaps he’s now slowly starting to creep up the pecking order, but it’s important that he keeps it going. Curtis Main also played particularly well and we were trying to get him on the ball more in the first half in that number 10 position. He’s made a very good start to pre-season and the only disappointment is that he didn’t get a goal, but he’s scored in previous games.”

Femmålsscorer Nicke Kabamba
"It’s always nice to get yourself on the scoresheet, so to end up with five goals is a brilliant feeling. I was happy as soon as I got to three, but then I had another two chances and managed to put them away."
