Defender interviewed in Morecambe programme
He was celebrating his first goal for the club at Carlisle on Saturday.
But Jack Whatmough is prepared to be back on the bench for tonight’s clash with Morecambe at Fratton Park.
The pairing of Christian Burgess and Matt Clarke has proved difficult to break up this season.
Whatmough knows he has to bide his time and is prepared to cheer Pompey on from the sidelines if they keep winning.
“Clarkey and Burge have both been brilliant this season and it’s going to be hard to get either of them out of the side,” he says in the official matchday magazine for tonight’s match “But I’ll do everything I can to do just that.
“I’ll keep cheering them on, though, because that’s part of being a team. It’s more important that Pompey get positive results rather than who’s out on the pitch, so I’ll just stay patient.
“Tom Davies and I are both working hard and the gaffer’s in a difficult situation because he’s got to try to keep everyone happy.
“Rotating us is probably the best and fairest way to do that. We’re both doing well and so are the boys who are starting.”
