Kieron Freeman has certainly enjoyed a successful start to his second stint as a Pompey player.
The summer signing has played the full 90 minutes of all three League One fixtures so far this season.
He is part of a back four that has kept clean sheets in all of those victories to send the Blues to the top of the standings.
Freeman knows there is still a very long way to go, however, and is not looking past Saturday’s trip to Doncaster.
He said: “I’ve played wing-back quite a bit, so this is something a bit new, but I’m enjoying it and the lads are looking after me.
“We’ve made a good start – let’s not get carried away, though, because football can change so quickly.
"That’s how the whole team is looking at things – just take it one match at a time and see what happens."
“All you can do as players is turn up for the next game and do your best to come away with all three points.
“That’s how the whole team is looking at things – just take it one match at a time and see what happens.
“The manager and his staff give us good information and it’s good learning for me to have all those stats on opposition.
“Every league and every player is watched and football has changed in that respect. You can’t take anything for granted.”
Pompey edged past a direct Shrewsbury team at Fratton Park on Tuesday night to maintain their 100 per cent winning record.
Freeman said: There are some teams in this league that play like that and not every game is going to be pretty.
The main thing is that you end up winning – that’s the only thing that really matters at the end of the day.”
