POM­PEY LACK­ING A CUT­TING EDGE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

PORTSMOUTH have been a side knock­ing on the door of top spot for sev­eral weeks and against the team who started the day fourth in League Two, they showed what a class act they are with­out find­ing a way past Brian Jensen.

While Mans­field strug­gled to keep hold of the ball, Pom­pey tar­geted at­tacks down the wing and with skip­per Michael Doyle show­ing a lovely pass­ing touch, the hosts carved the Stags open on sev­eral oc­ca­sions in the first half with­out tak­ing ad­van­tage.

Ben Davies was a cre­ative spark for the hosts and his runs and crosses from the right looked to be the most likely area where a goal would come. How­ever, they could not fin­ish the job off and will have to rec­tify that if they want to get pro­moted.
