Brett Pitman has certainly made the most of his return to the Pompey side.

The skipper was out of favour in February, but bagged a brace at Wycombe to take his personally tally to four goals from the past five games.

He coolly finished early in the second half and then curled a fine free-kick around the wall to help the Blues secure a 3-2 victory.

The result means Pompey are two points behind second-placed Barnsley, as well as Sunderland who are immediately below them

Pitman said: “It was tense at the end, but we were very good in the first half and then it became a scrap after the break.

“They kept putting the ball into our box from anywhere on the pitch and luckily we ultimately came out on top.

"We found a way to win and at times had a lot of class, while also showing good guts towards the end of the game."

“It was too close to put the free-kick over the wall, so I was always going to put it where I did and I hit it nicely.

“I’m pleased to be back playing, but also that we’re winning – it’s more important that the team is doing well.

“We’re going to need a lot of victories between now and the end of the season if we want to get promoted.

“You don’t know how many points are going to be enough, so you just have to try to keep winning whenever you can.

“We’re doing well at the moment and getting results, which is something we weren’t doing at the start of the year.

“Our lads are honest and hard-working and thankfully we’ve turned a corner in recent weeks, so want to keep that going.”
