Defender's delight at first win

His Pompey career did not get off to the best of starts.

But Nyron Nosworthy hopes that the Easter Monday victory over Plymouth can be a turning point.

The defender’s first three games since arriving on loan from Blackpool saw the Blues lose to AFC Wimbledon and Shrewsbury before conceding a last-gasp equaliser to collect just a point at Carlisle.

He was only on the pitch for a matter of minutes in the latter after being caught by the elbow of team-mate Joe Devera.

Nosworthy – with a bandage around his head – produced an imperious display against Argyle, however, as goals from Jed Wallace and Ryan Taylor secured a 2-1 triumph.

“We’ve had some disappointing results since I’ve arrived,” said the centre-back. “But we ground this one out and also played some good football at times.

“You don’t want to come in and just have defeats – and stitches – under your belt, so it was a relief.

“The first half was frustrating because we were the home team, but were giving them too much of the ball.

“But Plymouth weren’t clinical enough and we were then immediately rewarded for coming out stronger after the break.

“We learnt from what happened at Carlisle and managed the game a lot better to pick up all three points.”

Nosworthy – who will remain with Pompey for the rest of the season – has settled quickly into life at Fratton Park.

He said: “I’m enjoying it here – and it’s a warmer climate down south as well, which is nice!

“This is a great club that’s sleeping down in the bottom tier currently, but everyone’s trying to change that.

“You’ve got young players like Jed, who is performing really well at the moment and scoring some great goals.”
