2017-18 rochdale pompey pitmanPompey var presset men fik hentet et point.

På papiret, så er 3-3 ude mod et bundhold ikke godkendt, men Rochdale var på dagen det bedste hold og de fastholdte deres gode form, og at de ligger og roder i bunden, må vær en gåde for mange.

For Rochdale viste kvalitet, og de var styrende igennem kampen, men Pompey viste fight og energi, og det reddede et point i overtiden for Pompey.

6.pladsen er den plads der er kamp om, og om end et point i dag kunne ses som værende et skridt tilbage, så har Pompey i deres slutprogram, netop modstanderne omkring play off, så det bliver spændende slutfase.

Begge klubber havde to af rækkens bedste forsvar, så 3-3 afspejler også to klubber der gik efter alle 3 point, Pompey er ved at finde deres start XI og så har de i Pitman en spiller der kan afgøre kampe på egen hånd.

Hjemmeholdet som spillede med højt tempo kom foran på et fint mål, efter et træk ind i banen blev kanonen fyret af, og den kunne McGee ikke nå ved fjerneste stolpe og så stod den 1-0.

Pompey fik udlignet, de fik brudt et angreb, og med lidt Jamal Lowe trylleri på fløjen, så fandt han med en tværpasning Pitman og så stod den 1-1.

Inden da havde Rochdale fået et mål annulleret og efter 1-1 ålet bragede Pompey bolden på overliggeren, havde begge hold scoret, kunne det have været en anden kamp, for havde Pompey været bagud 02, så havde det været svært, og var vi foran 2-1, ja hvem ved!

Efter pausen fandt Rochdale igen plads i deres venstre side, og Pompey opdækning var ikke den bedste og så blev der igen skudt fra kanten af feltet og 2-1!

Udligningen kom efter en lang bold fra et frispark, clearingen fra Rochdale var ikke optimal, og så kunne Pompey sende den retur og søreme om Pitman ikke lurede igen og så stod den 2-2.

Rochdales føringsmål kom efter indlæg, igen fra deres venstre side, og her kunne det have været fint med McGee ude af sit mål for at få fat i bolden, i stedet stod han passivt på stregen og det kostede.

3-3 målet var næsten en tro kopi af 2-2 målet, igen en lang bold ind i feltet, og efter et par hovedstød vundet fra Pompey, ja så endte Rochdale med et selvmål i overtiden.

Slutprogammet, og du kan selv fundere over hvor mange point der kan hentes, pointsnit hjemme og ude er indsat.

Rochdale Keith Hill:
‘I thought we played superb offensive football. ‘We took the game to the opponent and I think Portsmouth rode their luck. They’re an excellent side, they didn’t go away, and they got the equaliser. ‘The key component of Portsmouth is Brett Pitman, who was involved in all three goals at some point. I said to my central defenders that it’s typical of them having a good game today but their striker (Pitman), who is the main threat scores two goals and is involved in the final equaliser as we go into the embers of the game. ‘We should have done better in those situations with the long balls forward, but I’m really pleased with the energy, the commitment, the way the players played, and arguably, it could be a good point. ‘Portsmouth are a good side and beat Wigan earlier in the week, and they’re on a really good run, having won four before Saturday and conceding just one.

‘They’ve conceded three because of the way we attacked, and it’s a shame we couldn’t get the balance to the way that we defended.’

Pompey manager Kenny Jackett:
‘They were a yard quicker than us for the majority of the game. ‘We did well to hang on to their coat-tails and come back three times. ‘They had a lot of flow and good delivery in vital areas. ‘We’ve done well to earn a point though and, after being behind three times, we’ve shown character which I’m pleased about.’

Brett, Brett, Brett! He’ll smash it in the net! He scores left right and centre, our Captain-Magic Brett!

Really poor defending from #Pompey for all three goals yesterday. Simple closing down would have won us the game. Got away with it - need to step it back up next week.

Summary of yesterday 1/ we played poor when level 2/ we played well when behind 3/ showed fantastic character we haven’t had at times this season (a month ago we would have lost that 3-0) #Pompey

@JamzLowe is having a great season at @officialpompey but could he do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night in Stoke? Of course he can and it could be next season. #Pompey #PFC

Great support, great team spirit, 22 goals for Pitman. Disappointing to concede 3 but hey @officiallydale are improving and on that showing will certainly stay up. Never say die attitude just what we need for the run in. Good to see O'Keefe back. #Pompey

4/ Lowe /Pitman link for our first was outstanding, as was Pitmans run into the area (need to focus on that partnership next season and keep both fit and in form, we could win the league) 5/ Ive seen enough from @officiallydale over 2 games to believe they should stay up
