Guy: A Lot Of Work To Do

21 October 2013

Boss not getting carried away

Victory over Bury on Saturday means the Blues are unbeaten in four matches.

Bur Guy Whittingham insists that Pompey cannot afford to rest on their laurels.

His side are now only four points adrift of the play-off pack having collected seven points from games against Rochdale, Plymouth and the Shakers.

And the Blues boss wants to extend their recent run with victory over Wycombe on Tuesday night.

Whittingham said: “What we really want is something we haven’t had yet this season – back-to-back wins in the league.

“We know there’s a lot of hard work still to do and we’re not getting carried away.

“But there have been the odd mistakes that have cost us goals in the past and that’s the sort of thing we’re beginning to cut out.

“It’s been a while since our last match under the floodlights at Fratton Park – it seems like ages.

“I always like forward to them as a player because there would be a great atmosphere.”

If Pompey want to continue their fine form they will have to beat a Wycombe side who have won their last three matches and sit seventh in the table.

Whittingham said: “They’re on a great role and are a decent side. I’m sure people wouldn’t have expected them to be where they are.

“Gareth Ainsworth is a good guy and you can see that they’re all working their socks off for him.

“They have a lot of young guys who play without fear and just want to get on with it.”

John Marquis will be available for selection on Tuesday after Pompey extended the striker’s loan from Millwall for another month.

Whittingham said: “He likes it here and has done well for us, so it was the obvious thing to do.”
