Post Pompey: Guthrie

Congrats to Danny Guthrie on his first goal for the club as we bashed Pompey 3-0 at Fratton Park. With Stuart Pearce yet to finalise his squad for the upcoming Euro Under 21 Championships, surely on current form Guthrie could be set to force his way into the reckoning yet. The youngster said:

"I joined in with the boys on Saturday for my first session of the week and I was feeling it a bit in the game towards the end. I just made a late run into the box and it was a good pull-back by Shola. It was about using the pace of the ball and getting the right connection. It flew in and I really enjoyed it, especially as it was in front of our fans.

Hopefully, I can start pushing on from this and score goals more regularly. All the best midfielders in the world score goals, and that`s the aim. The first half was a bit tight and it was just a case of trying to quieten down the crowd. We came out in the second half, took our chances, and probably deserved the win. It was a case of building the two away games, when we kept two good clean sheets.

Portsmouth will get goals with the players they`ve got, but we were solid at the back, and it was a good win. Once we got the goal, we just wanted to control the game."
