Defender pleased to make league debut at Burton

After starting at Yeovil in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last Tuesday, however, Wynter was delighted to make his league debut at Burton.

He went off with a knock to the head in August’s Capital One Cup victory over Peterborough and missed the next five matches.

But the on-loan defender is pleased to be back in action following a spell on the sidelines.

It was not the fluid start to his Pompey career that Alex Wynter had hoped for.

He said: “It’s so frustrating when you’re watching the boys play and train from the sidelines.

“But you have to stay strong and work hard because you know your chance will come again.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to play in successive games now, so hopefully I can get a run in the side.

“But if not, and I’m on the bench, then I have to accept that and make sure I’m ready when needed.

“When you come back you feel like a new player again, so I’m feeling good and part of the team.”

The right-back had the Blues’ best chance, only to be denied by a double save at point-blank range.

Unfortunately, Wynter’s first taste of league action ended in defeat, with Pompey beaten 2-0 at the Pirelli Stadium.

“I hit the first one quite well,” said Wynter. “Then the ball fell back to me and I probably should have toe-poked it, but maybe I was trying to be too smart.

“At the crucial moments they were there to block it where perhaps we weren’t. "“But it’s a performance that we can hopefully learn from and make improvements going forward.
