Jed's Goal Glee

12 October 2013

Midfielder delighted with scoring form

Jed Wallace is in a rich vein of form for Pompey.

The teenage midfielder netted in a 1-1 draw at Plymouth – the third successive League Two fixture in which he has scored.

He took a touch after Yassin Moutaouakil’s cross had been flicked into his path before slamming a shot past Argyle keeper Luke McCormick.

Wallace has now scored a total of four goals this season – but is targeting plenty more.

He said: “The goal against Rochdale last week was one of my favourites for Pompey because Alan McLoughlin and I have been doing a lot of work on coming inside on my left foot.

“When the ball dropped on my left foot against Plymouth, I thought about smashing it.

“But I had horrible visions of swinging my leg and missing the ball, so took an extra touch, stayed calm and found the net.

“Once the goal went in we started to believe in ourselves a bit more and realise that we were still in the game.

“It’s going well for me at the moment, so I need to continue contributing to the team and keep scoring goals.”

Pompey were unable to record a third victory in the space of a week, but Wallace was not unhappy with their performance at Home Park.

He said: “We know that Plymouth is a tough place to come, but maybe on another day we would have come away with three points.

“But we’re not going to complain after two great results earlier in the week and then a draw to end it.

“It’s been a positive few days for us and our performances have given us something to build on.”
