Millie Carter is looking to kick on and gain more minutes in a Pompey shirt.
The forward has featured as a substitute so far for the Blues this season and was brought on during last week’s National League Cup defeat at Chichester.
It meant that Pompey dropped into the plate, while their opponents progressed in the main competition.
And Carter hopes they can use the result as motivation in Sunday’s clash with Coventry at the PMC Stadium.
Speaking in the programme for the National League South contest, she said: “I think it was a disappointing result for us, as a team.
“They wanted it more than us, and on the day, were better than us. It’s been a big learning curve and now we look to move on.
“Sometimes losing is good, but only when you work hard to put the wrongs right in the next game – which is what we will look to do against Coventry.”
Despite that cup result, Carter is looking forward to a promising season for Pompey.
She said: “I think we are contenders for the league title and definitely have a good chance in the other cups we are involved with.”
“We’ve gelled so well during the start of the season and I can only imagine we will become closer as a team and more successful as the years go on.”
Also in issue three, Jade Bradley reveals her firsts and lasts, while there are the usual round-ups from chairman Eric Coleborn and Blues boss Sadler.
