Tom Lowery's undoubted talent has been enough to earn a complimentary chant from the Fratton faithful.
That is despite missing a big chunk of action through injury since arriving at the club in the summer of 2022.
Hamstring problems affected the midfielder last term, while knee damage had kept him sidelined since the opening game of the current campaign.
But Lowery came off the bench during last week's defeat by Leyton Orient and is hoping to put the dark days behind him.
He said: "It's great to be back playing football again, although I obviously wish it had been in better circumstances.
"It's tough for any player when you're out injured for so long, but there's a a great group of lads here who keep you going.
"To be injured for so much of my first 18 months is the club is, of course, personally very disappointing.
"It's tough for any player when you're out injured for so long, but there's a a great group of lads here who keep you going."
"I haven't been able to put together a decent run of games, but I'm feeling really good right now.
"There was a small setback for me before Christmas after recovering from the injury to my knee.
"That was frustrating, but it was nothing serious and hopefully I can have a nice spell of being fully fit."
With one win from the past six games, Pompey are hoping to get back on track when they visit Fleetwood on Saturday.
Lowery said: "It wasn't anywhere good enough all over the pitch last week and I think that hurt us all. We were gutted.
"But we've all got to pitch in and I'll be doing my best to help the team as much as I possibly can.
"It's about how we bounce back and we've got some big games coming up that give us a chance to put things right."
