Striker thrilled with Dagenham display
It was his first start of the season.
But Patrick Agyemang certainly played a key role as Pompey beat Dagenham & Redbridge 3-0.
The striker teed-up James Dunne’s emphatic opener just before the break at Fratton Park.
He was then substituted to a standing ovation after Jed Wallace had netted a second half penalty.
And Agyemang was delighted to be back in action again after a frustrating period on the sidelines.
He said: “I was happy to be involved and make a contribution. I felt really confident out there.
“I’ve come on in the previous few weeks, but it was good to make a start and I grew as the game went on.
“I didn’t play as much as I would have liked last season and then I’ve had an injury setback this summer, but it’s good to be back and feeling sharp again.
“I think you can see the difference when I do play and I like to help the other guys improve their game.
“You don’t always have to score – I worked hard for the team and got the assist for the first goal.”
Agyemang appreciated the response he received from the Fratton faithful throughout the evening.
He said: “That feels amazing. Every time they were cheering my name it just made me want to keep going.
“In the end, I was getting cramp in both hamstrings, so when we went 2-0 up it was fine to change things.”
