Midfielder hopes to keep winning run going
It has been a remarkable turnaround in form.
Pompey were sliding towards the bottom two after a run of six matches without a victory.
But then Andy Awford took charge and the Blues have looked a different side, collecting three successive wins to start climbing the League Two table again.
And on-loan midfielder Danny Hollands is pleased to have played his part in Pompey’s recent revival.
“Football’s a strange game and things don’t always work out the way you want,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Bristol Rovers.
“But I played here pre-season and I already knew a lot of the guys, so I was aware when I signed that there was more than enough quality to get out of trouble.
“Thankfully my first three games have gone the way we wanted, but now we have to finish strongly and get as high up the league as we can.
“For whatever reason it hasn’t worked out previously this season, but I think we’re now starting to show what we’re capable of and hopefully that can be carried on into next season.”
You can read the full interview – where Hollands also talks about his Pompey future – in Saturday’s programme.
Issue 24 is another packed edition with a double-sided pull-out poster and collectable player cards.
Also in the perfect-bound 84-page publication, Andy Awford discusses his firsts, we take an in-depth look at Bristol Rovers and there are exclusive columns from Iain McInnes, Awford and Johnny Ertl.
