Bradley: More Progress Please

30 November 2013

Defender wants to build on draw at Hartlepool

Pompey stopped the rot with a gutsy display at Hartlepool.
 
And Sonny Bradley wants them to use the point gained in a goalless draw to spark an upturn in form.
 
The Blues had lost five successive matches before travelling to Victoria Park.
 
But they looked much more assured in the north-east as the hosts were restricted to very few chances.
 
Next up for Pompey is the rearranged home clash with Wycombe on Wednesday night and Bradley hopes to see more progress.
 
The defender said: “It took us eight hours to get to Hartlepool and it was a horrible journey.
 
“We’d lost each of our last five matches and we were all determined to put things right.
 
“It was always going to be a tough game for us, but we defended as a team and didn’t concede, which is pleasing.
 
“As a unit we definitely look more solid and the team spirit we showed can give us plenty of hope for the rest of the season.
 
“We couldn’t get the win, but we had chances in the first half and Jed was unlucky to hit the post.
 
“But we’ll take a draw and a clean sheet and look to move on when we’re back at Fratton Park next week.”
 
Teenager Jack Whatmough retained his place in the Blues back-line against Hartlepool.
 
Bradley said: “He’s still only 17 – it’s a bit weird for me because I’ve always been the younger one in the defence.
 
“But he’s done really well in the last two games and we’re starting to build a partnership that we hope can continue to grow.”
