CRAIG HASN’T CUT IT AT POM­PEY YET

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Jamie Holt

PORTSMOUTH striker Craig West­carr ad­mits his first sea­son at Frat­ton Park hasn’t been up to scratch.

The 30-year-old had net­ted seven times in 36 games prior to this week­end since mov­ing from Wal­sall on a free.

But West­carr has found start­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties limited of late and con­cedes the sea­son hasn’t gone to plan.

“It has been a dis­ap­point­ing cam­paign, ob­vi­ously we know that,” he said.

“Of course I was ex­pect­ing more. With this squad we shouldn’t re­ally be in this po­si­tion, it just hasn’t hap­pened this year for cer­tain rea­sons.

“For me it wasn’t about com­ing down from the league above. It was about com­ing to Portsmouth and play­ing ev­ery week, which I thought I could, to my strengths – but it hasn’t hap­pened this year.

“I haven’t played a lot with Matt Tubbs. I’ve barely played in a strike­force all sea­son!

“I just have to take it on the chin and move for­ward. I’ll keep work­ing hard and see what hap­pens.We will be look­ing to get pro­mo­tion next year, giv­ing ev­ery­thing for who­ever is in charge.”
