Agyemang: The Worst I've Seen

22 October 2013

Striker says torrential rain made match unplayable

Patrick Agyemang has been around for quite a while.

The 33-year-old has played in all four divisions with Wimbledon, Gillingham, Preston, QPR, Stevenage and now Pompey.

But the striker has never seen weather as bad as the rain that lashed Fratton Park on Tuesday night.

The torrential rain ultimately saw the Blues’ match against Wycombe abandoned at half-time with the score at 1-1 – a decision that came as no surprise to Agyemang.

He said: “In my whole career, I think they were the worst conditions I’ve ever seen.

“We were hoping that we would be able to carry on and that the rain wouldn’t get any worse.

“But it wasn’t getting better – it was unplayable really. Everyone was slipping and it was really frustrating.

“We got the goal back and I think we would have gone on to win it if we’d have gone back out there.”

Agyemang had converted Ricky Holmes’ free-kick to cancel out Billy Knott’s fine opener for the Chairboys.

It was his fifth goal of the season, but will now be expunged from the record books.

“I didn’t know the rules before,” said Agyemang. “But I think it’s bookings count and goals don’t, which is ridiculous.

“But I’ve just to try again and hopefully I’ll get my fifth in the next game instead.

“We’re confident from set-pieces, although we need to work on our general play which is lacking a bit at the moment.”

Supporters should keep hold of their match tickets as they will be honoured for the rearranged fixture.
