Midfielder looking for Morecambe joy
There have been just two occasions this season when Pompey have returned from an away match with all three points in the bag.
Oxford and Cambridge were the destinations for those victories, although the Blues have drawn as many times as they have lost on their travels.
Pompey will try to improve that record at the Globe Arena when they face fellow mid-table outfit Morecambe on Saturday.
And, with just five fixtures remaining, James Dunne is confident they can end the 2014/15 campaign on a positive note.
He said: “It’s another long trip for us this weekend and it will be a tough game, but we know we have to do better on the road.
“We’ve got one of the worst records in the league. That’s something we have to look at and try to put right.
“We should have won our last away game at Carlisle and were disappointed to concede a last-minute goal and only take a point.
“But we had a good result against Plymouth on Monday and have some momentum to take into Saturday’s match.
“We haven’t been consistent enough and haven’t won enough games, so hopefully we can finish this season well and then look to do better in the next one.”
Jed Wallace has excelled in the last couple of games and Dunne is full of praise for his fellow midfielder.
He said: “When things aren’t going well he comes up with a goal to kick us into life – we’ve seen that on a lot of occasions this season.
“Jed’s a great player and has improved a lot since I’ve been here. Now he’s got to keep that form going.”
