John Mousinho has been happy with the number of chances created in Pompey’s opening two games.
And he wants to see that continue when they make the trip to Leyton Orient in League One this weekend.
A home draw with Bristol Rovers on the opening day was followed by victory at Forest Green in the Carabao Cup.
With most of the squad used in those fixtures, Mousinho has been pleased with the strength in depth.
The Blues boss said: “Both performances have been excellent, even if we felt slightly negative after last Saturday’s game.
“When we looked back over it, though, it changed our mood heading into this week and we were able to follow it up with a positive performance on Tuesday.
“So we want to build on that and get more points on the board – which is always the first priority in the league.
“There are a lot of good things we can take to Leyton Orient and there has been no shortage of chances created.
“It’s maybe something we were lacking towards the end of last season and we’ve tried to address that.
"There are a lot of good things we can take to Leyton Orient and there has been no shortage of chances created."
“But plenty of players have given us a selection headache and it’s one of the reasons why we wanted to recruit well over the summer.”
Pompey’s opponents stormed to the fourth tier title last term and began the current one with a narrow defeat at Charlton.
Mousinho said: “They were the outstanding side in League Two and are now looking to build on that success.
“There are good players in the building – especially in their front-line, where they have the likes of Joe Pigott, who we obviously know a lot about.
“Richie Wellens coaches them well and I’m sure they’ll be right at it for their first home game. We’ll have to be at our best.”
Pompey will be without Tom Lowery at Brisbane Road after the midfielder injured his knee against Rovers.
Mousinho said: “He’s had his scan and is going to see a specialist about it next week, so we’ll have a bit more news then.
“Certainly in the short-term, though, he’ll unfortunately be out. We’ll wait and see before giving a more detailed prognosis.
“Paddy Lane is coming back nicely and has been back out on the grass, while we didn’t pick up anything from Tuesday night.”
