Ogilvie: We Have To Fight Our Way Through

Defender urges unity after defeat to Charlton

1 January 2023

Connor Ogilvie has urged the Pompey squad to stick together in order to turn around their run of poor form.

A 3-1 defeat to Charlton was not the way most people inside Fratton Park wanted to celebrate the new year.

Ogilvie had drawn the hosts level on the stroke of half-time, only for the Blues to promptly concede again within three minutes of the second period starting.

The defender understands why the crowd made their frustrations heard and knows the players must work hard to get back on track.

He said: “We’re obviously gutted at how the game’s gone. We need to dust ourselves down and try to get going again.

“We weren’t great for the whole match, but got the equaliser and that was lifeline for us. Then it went away from us again.

"Performances and results haven’t been there in recent weeks and so the fans have every right to be how they are."

“Everyone has to be accountable and we all need to step up and start performing because the form hasn’t been amazing.

“The dressing room was low afterwards, but we have to stick together and turn things around sharpish.

“Performances and results haven’t been there in recent weeks and so the fans have every right to be how they are.

“It’s up to us to give them something to cheer about and that’s something everyone in the squad needs to do.

“You look around our changing room and there’s a lot of talent, but it’s not going our way and we have to fight our way through.

“We’ll speak as a group because the only way to get back to where we want to be is by working together.”
