Midfielder talks goals in Saturday's programme
He has scored more goals in a Pompey shirt than any other player this season.
Jed Wallace has found the net on 12 occasions – with nine of those strikes coming in the league.
It is part of the 20-year-old’s game that has constantly improved since he broke into the first team in January 2013.
But Wallace – who made his home debut against this weekend’s opponents Hartlepool – admits it was not always his strongest asset.
“I used to be like a rabbit in the headlights whenever I got near the goal,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash at Fratton Park. “My record was terrible for the youth team and then I went to Farnborough and didn’t score in six games for them.
“But for some reason it just clicked when I was sent on loan to Whitehawk and ever since then I go out every Saturday thinking I can chip in with a goal.
“It’s become a big part of my game and sometimes when I’m not playing well I can dig myself out of a hole with an equaliser or even a winner.
“However, the important thing is that we’re winning games, whether it’s me scoring, Tubbs scoring or one going in off Paul Robinson’s knee.”
To read the full interview – where Wallace also discusses making 100 appearances for Pompey – pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers around the ground.
