2019-20: Fleetwood – Portsmouth 1-2 (FA Cup 3.runde)

God indsats fra Pompey der er videre til 4.runde i FA Cuppen.


Der var ikke de helt store ændringer hos Pompey, hvor den nye loan signing Seddon som forventet startede på venstre backen mens John Marquis fik chancen fra start efter et par kampe på bænken. Sidste ændring var Andy Cannon.

Pompey lagde godt fra start, og de fik skabt mulighederne mod Fleetwood, og mulighederne var der i den grad inden pausen, hvor der var muligheder til James Bolton der headede forbi og Andy Cannon sparkede over mål.

Fleetwood fik deres muligheder, men Alex Bass i målet var på plads.

Marcus Harness voldte Fleetwood problemer igennem hele kampen og den form han viser, må gerne resultere i flere mål og assister fra hans fødder, Harness har vist niveau i hele denne sæson.

Ved pausen kunne den lokale avis The News sports editor twette dette

Efter pausen, der begyndte det at snerpe til og det lå og lurede at der snart kom et mål, og at det var gæsterne i gråt der skulle have det.

Det blev 0-1 da Pompey fik scoret på en dødbold, noget der ikke er sket ofte i denne sæson, og det blev James Bolton der på et hjørne var klar ved bageste stolpe

Søreme om det ikke blev på en ny dødbold blev 0-2, da John Maquis fik skubbet bolden over stregen og forhåbentlig fik boostet lidt selvtillid forhåbentlig, dette 5 min efter 0-1 målet.

Så kom Fleetwood frem, og de fik da reduceret til 1-2, men målet kom så sent at det ikke ændrede noget.

Dermed scorede Pompey £135.000 for at vinde, samt en plads i 4.runde i FA Cuppen og debutanten Seddon fik en særdeles lovende første kamp.

This Joey Barton rubbish about us being some kind of financial superpower in league 1 is nonsense and sour grapes. Unless things have drastically changed, the latest accounts for 2018 show #ftfc spent £5,301,915 on wages and salaries, #Pompey spent slightly less with £5,245,649

My pleasure was to call #Fleetwood vs #Pompey for today. If you were out there watching, I salute you. Takeaways: – Pompey deserved it. – Marcus Harness v.good; brightest attacking player. – Pompey defended set pieces better, made better choices in promising positions. (1/3)

Sean Raggett is the modern day Carl Tiler. #pompey

I wonder if Kenny will get any praise if Seddon continues to impress? Unlikely given the fact that many #Pompey fans don’t have it in their nature to give credit when it’s due.

Pompey only 4 wins from third FA Cup Final in 12 years. Fate. Destiny. Written in stars. Haha.

Anyone wanting scum next round gotta be kidding can handle another 4-0 to them! Much rather a day out in London against Spurs or Arsenal! So roll on Oxford away 4th round! #Pompey

 

Joey Barton, Flletwood:

“We know Pompey are a good side, they’re expected to get promoted out of the division, certainly on the budget that they’ve got, but I thought we more than matched them.

“We created some decent opportunities, but we were undone by two set plays.

“The lads were well-versed, well-coached, well-organised, but you can’t legislate for people not doing their jobs unfortunately, so we’re dumped out of the cup, and it’s a tough pill to swallow because I think in open play it was a 50-50 game.”

 

Kenny Jackett, Portsmouth

“I thought first half we played well and had some good chances – I was a little disappointed to go in 0-0.

“I’m pleased to say in the second half we got some key moments right, which we haven’t always done this season, and two goals from set-pieces is very welcome.

“In the end we needed that second goal because Fleetwood finished the game strong and put a lot of pressure on us.”
