Sky Sports had drawn attention to the fact that Pompey were without a headed League One goal all season.

But Connor Ogilvie put an end to that unwanted record by sealing a 2-0 victory over Morecambe at Fratton Park.

The centre-back converted a Miguel Azeez corner in the second half, which added to Marcus Harness’ early finish.

And with the Blues also keeping a clean sheet at the other end of the pitch, it was an enjoyable afternoon for Ogilvie.

He said: “I can’t really ask for much more. I was happy to contribute and it was a great day at the office.

“It was a special moment and hopefully there will be a lot more. The ball fell for me and thankfully it went in.

“We’ve worked hard on our game-plan in training all week and were able to implement it well on the pitch.

“The defensive partnerships are growing better and better with each match and the number of clean sheets we’re getting is great – now we’ve got to carry it on.

“Morecambe put some more pressure on us in the second half, but I felt we dealt with that well and the second goal settled us a bit.”

Ogilvie is pleased that Pompey have brushed aside their issues with injury and illness to build a nine-match unbeaten run in the league.

He said: “We want to keep fighting and always push each other in training. We stick together and look to dig our way through.

“There are injuries and illnesses at the moment, but that’s life. We just stay as unit and try to deal with it.

“We’ve been resolute since that Ipswich game a couple of months back and are determined to carry that on.”
