East: Looking More Solid

11 August 2013

Summer signing believes Pompey are growing stronger

Pompey were not quite able to hold on for three points at Accrington.

Peter Murphy’s late leveller meant that the Blues had to settle for a share of the spoils at the Store First Stadium.

But Danny East believes they looked more solid than in the previous weekend’s defeat to Oxford.

And the versatile summer signing felt Pompey deserved more than just a draw for their efforts.

He said: “I don’t think we really deserved to go a goal down and then to turn it around and still not win was disappointing.

“But we managed to bounce back after falling behind and we’ve got our first point on the board.

“As a team I felt we looked a lot more solid and not like an outfit who had conceded two goals.

“I think those two goals were harsh on us, but that’s what has stopped us from winning the game.”

East was used in midfield at Bournemouth last week, but moved to left-back at Accrington.

He said: “I’ve played in every position on the pitch – even in goal – over the last few years. Left-back's not my favourite position, but I’ll play there if needed.

“It’s about doing a job for the team and trying to help this club get out of League Two.”

Despite concentrating on events in Pompey’s half, East was impressed with the performances of David Connolly and Patrick Agyemang up front.

He said: “They’re a great partnership and also look really sharp together in training. They’re quite easy on the eye and it’s good for the fans to watch.”
