Eugh. It’s the hope that kills you. The loss to Peterborough during midweek obviously put an end to Portsmouth’s automatic promotion hopes which is hugely frustrating. What’s more annoying is that you’ve been flying for ages, making even a good campaign seem slightly disappointing as the play-offs await.
Just keep telling yourself, it’s been a good season.
Indeed, it all comes down to the quality and belief from the players on the pitch and especially since the Checkatrade Trophy victory, those 11 on the pitch have had it all. Their run of form has left them with a great chance at securing promotion back into the Championship and that is no less than Kenny Jackett and his team deserve.
The jump in divisions would obviously lead to Pompey needing a better, more talented group of players and one player they may turn to is Ipswich forward Ellis Harrison.
Despite scoring just once in 16 games for relegated Ipswich this season, a move to Portsmouth could be totally different for Ellis Harrison, instead bringing out the best in him. The 25-year-old was a consistent goal-getter for Bristol Rovers before moving to Ipswich this summer, a move that has so far hindered his progress in the game.
With 14 League One goals before he moved to the Championship, Harrison without a doubt showed the quality he could provide Portsmouth, whether that be in the Championship or League One.
Hopefully for you, it’s the former…
