Goal hero thrilled with Peterborough performance
It did not take long for Miles Storey to endear himself to the Fratton faithful.
There were only 12 minutes played against Peterborough when the on-loan Swindon forward collected the ball and neatly deposited it into the bottom corner.
It proved to be the winner as the Blues caused an upset to progress to the second round of the Capital One Cup.
And Storey was left delighted with the outcome of his home debut for Pompey.
He said: “The whole team were brilliant and it’s great to take a scalp like Peterborough, who nearly went up into the Championship last season.
“It really shows the character we have in the team and the lads were brilliant, especially in the first half.
“We out-played them. They were passing it around without really doing much, but when we got the ball there was high-tempo and we attacked with pace.
“I had six shots in the warm-up and scored five of them, so I thought I might as well have a hit if I got the chance.
“Thankfully it went inside the post and I can’t really ask for more than scoring the winner on my home debut at Fratton Park.
“We need to take that form into Saturday’s game against Cambrige, which is even bigger for us really.”
There were some concerns when Storey walked gingerly off to be substituted just before the hour mark.
He explained: “Unfortunately I got a migraine and couldn’t really focus on the ball. It happens once a year, so it’s strange that it happened when it did.
“There was nothing I could do about it, but thankfully we were able to hold on for the win.”
