Bradley Lethbridge has continued his positive momentum, despite Portsmouth Reserves’ 2-1 loss against AFC Bournemouth in the Central League Cup, which was reported by the club’s official website.
Around a week after the teenager scored his first-ever goal for Pompey’s first team, when he notched to take the EFL Trophy tie against Oxford United to penalties, he got on the score sheet again.
While this wasn’t enough to get a result for the team, it is certainly a good sign for his prospects, as he pushes for further involvements in Kenny Jackett’s team.
The 18-year-old’s goal against Oxford came in his third appearance for Pompey, when he pounced on Josh Flint’s shot, that had deflected towards him, adjusting his feet to side-foot it past the goalkeeper, as seen in the highlights video on the Portsmouth FC YouTube channel.
His latest effort came when he snuck in at the back post to convert Harrison Brook’s deep cross with a half-volley, as shown in a video on Pompey’s Twitter page.
It is still fairly difficult to see Lethbridge getting many chances considering he has Brett Pitman, Ellis Harrison and John Marquis ahead of him.
However, he is giving himself the best possible chance of having further involvements with the seniors by continuing to get on the scoresheet.
Will Kenny Jackett still be Portsmouth manager by the end of the season?
