Pompey’s forward line have been in fantastic form to help hurtle up the League One standings.

Ronan Curtis got in on the act against Northampton, with the third goal in a 4-0 hammering of Northampton at Fratton Park.

His header was also parried clear to provide John Marquis with his second of the afternoon, while Marcus Harness completed the rout late on.

Curtis is thrilled to see the Blues looking so effective in attack and hopes that their free-scoring form will continue.

He said: “It was a good night for us. We knew what to expect from Northampton, but wanted to produce a great performance for ourselves.

“We’re looking to keep pushing up the league table and so we were really pleased to get another victory.

"It’s been a long wait for me, so I was pleased to get off the mark."

“We’ve switched the formation up to 4-4-2 recently and we’re feeding the strikers well, so it’s amazing.

“I hadn’t scored in the league this season. It’s been a long wait for me, so I was pleased to get off the mark.

“It’s been brilliant lately and all of the players know what to expect from ourselves and from each other.

“We’re flying at the moment and the important thing is we can keep this going and enjoy a bit of a run.”

Curtis replaced the injured Michael Jacobs against the Cobblers, having started the previous two matches on the bench.

The Republic of Ireland international said: “The boys had won a couple when I was a substitute, but you just have to bide your time and be ready.

“When that chances comes along you’ve got to make sure you take it and hopefully I’ve done that with an assist and a goal. Now I’m looking to kick on.”
