Pompey’s total of one goal conceded after the first games is the best record of any side in League One.
But John Mousinho now wants to see them build on that robust base by finding the net on a more regular basis.
He will hope that a switch to Carabao Cup action can get the goals flowing, with Peterborough visiting Fratton Park for a second round tie this evening.
And Mousinho insists that Pompey will continue doing their best to find success at both ends of the pitch.
The Blues boss said: “We’re in a very good spot in terms of how solid we’ve looked and how few goals we’ve conceded.
“We obviously want to be more of an attacking threat and score more goals to turn those draws into wins.
“But we’re dominating every game in terms of possession and it’s not that we’re trying to play a negative brand of football.
“We’re not creating enough in the final third currently, however, and so there’s a lot for us to build on, despite the positives.
"We obviously want to be more of an attacking threat and score more goals to turn those draws into wins."
“There are certain aspects of our game that we’re really pleased with, but we’re also nowhere near where we need to be.
“We do fell like we’re getting there, though, and hopefully it’s just a matter of time before we hit the back of the net consistently.”
Tonight sees the first of two Fratton meetings with Posh this week, with the same side visiting in the third tier on Saturday.
Mousinho said: “We’ve prepared for them based on the last couple of league games, but they might make a few changes.
“I think they’ll still play the same way regardless and they were one of the toughest sides we faced last season.
“The strange thing is that we’ll then be using this game as part of our pre-match preparation for Saturday.
“We’ll be strong and I think that’s the case whatever 11 we put out there – we’re certainly going to be trying to win the tie.
“There are plenty of players who are knocking on the door at the moment and it’s about finding that balance.”
