McGee: No Fear

Blues' form makes keeper confident

Pompey’s recent form has got supporters dreaming of a second successive promotion.

Kenny Jackett’s side have won four out of their past five league fixtures, including Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Charlton.

It has seen them rise to seventh spot in the third tier table – just three points adrift of the play-off places.

And while Luke McGee knows there is still plenty of work to do this season, he is pleased that the Blues have the top six in their sights.

The goalkeeper said: “We’re not going to get carried away, but I think Charlton was a big result because we want to remain in touching distance.

“We knew before the game where we were and where they were – and we didn’t want the gap to increase.

"We don’t fear anyone – whether it’s at home or away. We always feel like we can win the game."

“With the form we’re in at the moment, it’s important to keep it going and build even more momentum.

“We don’t fear anyone – whether it’s at home or away. We always feel like we can win the game.

“Some performances haven’t been as good as others, but on this occasion everybody did the job they were given.

“We got the win and we also got the clean sheet – hopefully there’s many more of both of them to come.”

A Josh Magennis own-goal secured the points for Pompey, with Brett Pitman later seeing his penalty saved.

McGee said: “It was a great cross from Gaz for the free-kick and I know there’s some argument about who got the final touch.

“Then we got the penalty, but the keeper’s made a very good stop and we defended fantastically after that.

“The boys dealt with all the crosses that were coming in and I was happy to get down to make a key save late on.”
