Wing-back interviewed in Oxford programme

Dan Butler says Pompey are relishing every match that comes their way.

The Blues are unbeaten in six games and have won the last three in succession to climb to 13th in the League Two table.

They followed up a last-gasp triumph over Exeter by enjoying a rout of Cambridge and then fighting back from two goals down to beat Tranmere on Tuesday night.

And with fixtures coming thick and fast, Butler is determined to build on that impressive run.

“We’d been playing well for a while without results going our way,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Oxford. “Now we’re getting a bit more luck, but it’s only what we deserve.

“We’ve stuck together, worked hard and everyone’s contributed to a change of fortunes.

“With the way things are going, we just want to play as many games as we can because we’re improving with every one.

“Players like Matt Tubbs and Josh Passley have come in and given us a boost, while partnerships are starting to develop all over the pitch.

“It’s all coming together for us and we need to build on that. There are still a lot of points to play for and we want to get as many as possible.”
