Walker: I Want To Hit The Ground Running

Striker looking to help secure success for Pompey

18 January 2022

Tyler Walker signs for Pompey

Pompey fans will be hoping that Tyler Walker can replicate his previous form playing under Danny Cowley.

The striker has arrived at Fratton Park in a loan deal from Championship side Coventry for the remainder of the season.

He previously played under the current Blues boss while the pair were both at Lincoln, netting 16 goals in 34 games.

Walker’s form was so impressive that he was recalled by his parent club – then Nottingham Forest – midway through the campaign.

And the 25-year-old is now looking to make an impact on the south coast, as Pompey try to close the gap on the top six.

He said: “Working with Danny again was huge and I didn’t have a lot of time to think about it. It was definitely a big pull.

"I like to score goals and create chances. I’m hard-working and looking to contribute towards a winning team."

“Pompey are a massive club with a huge fan-base and I think that everyone knows where they want to be.

“I’ve had previous experience of League One and am just looking to get back playing again. Hopefully I can hit the ground running.

“I know a couple of the lads already – like Joe Morrell and Marcus Harness – from previous loan spells.

“The reason I came here is to play football and I’m really hoping it can work out here, so we can kick on.

“We want to get up the league and into those play-off positions, so we can really push for promotion.

“I like to score goals and create chances. I’m hard-working and looking to contribute towards a winning team.”
