POM­PEY ARE FLY­ING HIGH AT LAST

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

IT SHOULD have been an early-sea­son clash be­tween two pro­mo­tion chal­lengers but af­ter this game it’s only Portsmouth who look like con­tin­u­ing as one of the early favourites in League Two.

Af­ter two years of dis­ap­point­ment, Paul Cook looks like he’s fi­nally got a side to back up the pre-sea­son prom­ise and in Matt Tubbs a striker who has the fire­power to lift Pom­pey back up the Football League.

For Lu­ton, another goal con­ceded late on and more dis­ap­point­ment as John Still’s new-look side need to gel quickly in or­der to keep pace with the league’s front run­ners.

They were early sea­son favourites to chal­lenge at the top end of the ta­ble but cur­rently find them­selves lan­guish­ing down in 22nd in the ta­ble.
