Jed: Victory Could Be A Catalyst

13 September 2013

Midfielder hopes Pompey can end away-day jinx at Burton

Fans following Pompey away from home this season have endured plenty of frustration.

And Jed Wallace insists it is a feeling shared by the Blues squad.

Pompey have led in all three League Two matches on their travels, only to draw 2-2 on each occasion.

And Wallace believes that first triumph could prove to be a catalyst for many more.

The teenage midfielder said: “Once we can hold on and maybe win a game 2-1 it will give everyone confidence and belief.

“It’s hard to work out how we’ve come away from Accrington and Cheltenham without picking up six points.

“I look at the chances we created last week and I never felt we were in any danger.

“When you score two goals away from home you should be winning games, not drawing them.

“We pass our way through teams and people would be buzzing about our moves if we were in the Premier League.

“I look at the goals we’ve scored and they’re all really good, but some of the ones we’ve conceded have been sloppy.

“It has been frustrating. There have been a few individual mistakes, but we lose as a team.

“It’s a new team and when everyone gets to fully know each other we’ll be alright.

“We have to remember that we’re unbeaten away from home in the league and the only time we’ve been beaten at home is when we’ve been down to 10 men.”

Wallace hopes that Pompey can return to winning ways when they travel to Burton on Saturday.

He said: “They look strong and I expect them to be in or around the play-offs come the end of the season.

“We’ve got a few really tough games coming up now, but we’re looking forward to them.

“After the frustration of our game last week, we’re chomping at the bit to get going again.”
