Frustration For Agyemang

11 March 2014

Striker denied by the woodwork against Burton

It looked like he was about to end Pompey’s long wait for a goal.

But Patrick Agyemang’s second half strike against Burton somehow managed to hit the inside of the post and land safely.

It means the Blues have now drawn 0-0 in each of their last three games.

And Agyemang wants Pompey to find the goals that will complement their new-found solidity at the back.

The striker said: “We’re disappointed that we didn’t win – even though they’re doing well in the league.

“I had a good chance to score and was left wondering just how it managed to stay out. It was just one of those things – there was no luck for us.

“I’ve stabbed the ball with the outside of my foot and thought it was going into the bottom corner. But it’s just hit the post and it’s so frustrating.

“We were solid at the back again and it was another clean sheet for Trevor Carson in goal.

“At the start of the season we were scoring goals freely and letting them in freely and it’s reversed now.

“We just need to try to get that confidence back because we seem to be lacking it going forward. Everyone can see that.

“But we need to keep working hard and stick together, while taking what we work on in training out onto the pitch.”

The crowd were left annoyed by several refereeing decisions against Burton – a sentiment shared by Agyemang.

He said: “I had people climbing over me all night and because I’m a big guy that sometimes goes against me.

“But their strikers were getting fouls just for little touches, which I thought was unfair. That’s just the way it goes sometimes, though, and you have to get on with it.”
