PASSLEY ENJOYING WING-BACK ROLE

13 February 2015

On loan defender interviewed in Exeter programme

Josh Passley has impressed since moving to Pompey on loan from Fulham last month.

The defender has helped his new side go three matches unbeaten, while also keeping three clean sheets.

That came after a switch of systems, with the Blues moving from 4-4-2 to 3-5-2.

And Passley is enjoying that formation – even if it does mean a lot more hard work for the 20-year-old.

“I played as a wing-back when I was at Shrewsbury,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Exeter. “It’s something I was already pretty familiar with.

“There’s a lot more running involved – there’s no winger in front of you, so you’re constantly having to get up and down.

“You have to be switched on for the whole time because you don’t want to be caught out positionally.

“But we’ve got plenty of great defenders at this club and I’m always confident that they’ll be covering any gaps that I might leave.”

To read the full interview – where Passley also reveals what it’s like to run out at Fratton Park – pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers around the ground.
