Midfielder says Pompey will always try to entertain
Jed Wallace hopes Pompey can pass their way out of League Two this season.
The basement division is often stereotyped as a home for the long-ball game.
But the Blues have looked to entertain as well as pick up points this season – scoring seven goals in their last three matches.
And Wallace is delighted to be part of a side that encourages a passing philosophy.
“I can’t think of anything worse for me than if we were a side who just got the ball and booted it,” says the midfielder in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s League Two clash with Chesterfield. “I think this season we’re going to look to play entertaining football whenever we can.
“The sides we face will be efficient – they’ll know what they’re good at and use that to try to hurt us.
“But we know we’re good at getting the ball to the front men and that’s what we’ll continue to do.
“We’re going to come up against teams that will boot it and others that will pass it, but we just have to concentrate on our own performances.”
