Omar Bogle has certainly made an impressive start to his Pompey career.

The striker has netted in both of his appearances for the club since arriving on loan from Cardiff at the start of the week.

He came off the bench to score on his debut in a narrow midweek defeat at Luton and notched again in his first Fratton appearance to secure a draw with Doncaster.

But Bogle is frustrated that those strikes have yielded a solitary point and hopes the Blues will soon be able to start celebrating league victories again.

He said: “I’m never worried about getting goals and for as long as I’m playing, I’ll back myself to score – even more so when you come to a team like this.

“If the chances are created for me then I’ll put them away and now it’s about making sure they count towards wins.

"It takes the gloss of it because we didn’t get the results we deserved."

“It was an instinctive finish and it’s about reading where the ball is going to fall, then just putting it away.

“But it’s similar to what I said after the Luton game – it takes the gloss of it because we didn’t get the results we deserved.

“We definitely shouldn’t have lost on Tuesday and I felt we were the better team for the whole match against Doncaster.

“We applied a lot of pressure to them and had a lot of set-pieces that I don’t think we capitalised on.

“I had a header in the first half and was disappointed not to score from it and there were plenty of others.

“Doncaster are a good team and tried to catch us on the break, but we’ve been flying all season and will work hard to get the wins. We’re not far away.”
