Poole Targeting More Goals

Defender delighted to net winner against Lincoln

24 September 2023

Regan Poole is part of a Pompey back-line that holds – jointly with Stevenage – the best defensive record in League One.

But he has also been making a useful contribution at the other end of the pitch, with goals in each of the past two Fratton fixtures.

After finding the net against Peterborough before the international break, he headed home the winner in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over former club Lincoln.

And the Welsh centre-back hopes he can keep chipping in to help the Blues maintain their spot at the top of the table.

He said: “It was a really good ball in from Sparkesy and I held myself in the air for a fair amount of time and nodded it back across.

“I was really happy to score what was the winning goal, although obviously didn’t celebrate against my former club.

“A lot of the lads are still at Lincoln and it’s a real good group and coaching staff. I really enjoyed my time there.

"That’s two for me now at Fratton Park and hopefully I can have a good season in front of goal to help the team."

“I could have had a few more goals this season, so I’m a bit disappointed – I hit the post when we played Cheltenham.

“But that’s two for me now at Fratton Park and hopefully I can have a good season in front of goal to help the team.”

Pompey fell behind early on against the Imps, but Paddy Lane soon equalised before Poole sealed the win just before the break.

He said: “We showed great character to come from behind against a side that made it really difficult for us.

“We’d been dominating the game even if I hadn’t scored, but to go in for the break winning gave us that platform.

“It’s been a tough week with a lot of travelling and some really difficult games, so we were always going to tire towards the end.

“But we’re top of the league – and we’re there for a reason – while we could have more points on the board.

“The morale is good here and I believe we’ve got what it takes, but we need to keep our foot on the pedal.”
