Match Report

League One


Portsmouth 1    2 Oldham Athletic

Eoin Doyle netted twice on his Fratton return as Pompey endured a difficult afternoon on the south coast.

Both sides started the game with an attacking intent, but Oldham were in control from the moment they grabbed their early opener.

It was a game to forget for the Blues, who suffered another injury blow at the back when Nathan Thompson was stretchered off.

And it never really looked like they would salvage anything once Doyle doubled the Latics’ lead just after the interval.

Brett Pitman did pull one back late on to restore some hope, but the hosts were unable to find a dramatic leveller.

Kenny Jackett made one enforced change from the side that beat Bristol Rovers earlier in the week.

Christian Burgess missed out with a calf injury, so Drew Talbot came into the starting 11 and Thompson moved to the centre of defence.

Richie Wellens said in the lead-up to the contest that former Fratton loanee Doyle would miss the contest through injury.

But it appeared to be mind games from the interim Oldham manager, as the striker was named in the team.

And it was Doyle who almost broke the deadlock in a frantic opening to the game, with his 25-yard effort cannoning against the post.

Pitman then tried his luck from a similar distance and a fine strike was expertly tipped over by Latics keeper Johny Placide.

Pompey’s skipper soon met a low cross from Dion Donohue, but Kean Bryan was well placed to clear the danger.

Both sides were looking capable of scoring and Matt Clarke blocked Jack Byrne’s effort before Rob Hunt’s shot swerved wide.

At the other end, Matty Kennedy’s centre was just about taken off the foot of Oliver Hawkins, who was waiting to pounce at the far post.

But it was Oldham who forged ahead on 16 minutes, when Thompson blocked Craig Davies’ effort and Doyle gobbled up the loose ball.

It soon got even worse for the hosts, as their defensive injury curse continued following a collision between Talbot and Thompson.

The latter came off worse and had to be stretchered from the pitch, with Gareth Evans coming on and Talbot moving to the middle.

Both setbacks seemed to affect the Blues and they struggled to find any fluency at either end of the pitch for the remainder of the first half.

A snap-shot from Byrne had to be acrobatically tipped over by Luke McGee to stop the Latics from doubling their lead.

Pompey did carve open one more decent opportunity before the break, however, following a quick move up the pitch.

The visitors were initially able to deal with the attack, but Jamal Lowe picked up the loose ball and struck the post.


Half Time

Portsmouth 0

Oldham Athletic 1


There was a surprise at the start of the second half, as Hawkins moved to the centre of a makeshift defence, with Evans playing off Pitman.

But it was a slip by Clarke that let in Davies, although the striker’s effort did not cause McGee too many problems.

Oldham did not let their hosts off for a second time, though, and after Hawkins had done well to intercept the danger, Doyle dispossessed Talbot and neatly dinked home his second of the game.

He came close to adding a third on 56 minutes, only for McGee to quickly leave his line and smother Dan Gardner’s ball over the top.

Some more slack defending saw Davies left in acres of space at the far post, although the striker could not quite rise high enough to guide Gevrao Nepomuceno’s cross on target.

Talbot was brought off on the hour mark to be replaced by Kyle Bennett and the newcomer had an immediate chance to reduce the deficit, but could not turn Kennedy’s centre on target.

The third and final switch soon followed, with Ben Close making way for Danny Rose in the middle of the park.

But those changes failed to result in a change of fortunes, as Pompey continued to labour against their energetic visitors.

Pitman was clearly struggling with an injury, but with the Blues having already made all their substitutions, he had to continue

And PITMAN seemed to shake it off, continuing his remarkable scoring streak late on by slotting in from Lowe’s cut-back.

The display of eight minutes of additional time made the Fratton faithful believe that a point could be salvaged.

But despite their best efforts, Pompey were unable to find another goal, as Oldham held on for the victory.

Match Report

League One


Portsmouth 3    0 Bristol Rovers

Oliver Hawkins opened his goalscoring account as Pompey returned to winning ways against Bristol Rovers.

He headed home just before the interval of an absorbing contest that was often played at a breathless pace.

The Fratton faithful played their part by creating a vibrant atmosphere and Brett Pitman made sure they had plenty to celebrate by adding a second half brace.

Kenny Jackett kept faith with the side that were beaten at Scunthorpe at the weekend.

But there was no place for Conor Chaplin among the substitutes, with his hamstring injury handing Curtis Main a seat on the bench.

The visitors looked dangerous on the break in the opening stages and Christian Burgess got in the way of Ellis Harrison’s strike before Joe Partington’s fine cross somehow evaded Billy Bodin.

Matt Clarke then just about did enough to put off Tom Nichols after the forward had latched onto a ball over the top and advanced on goal.

But the Blues were providing a threat of their own and it took a key interception from skipper Tom Lockyer to prevent Hawkins turning in Jamal Lowe’s teasing delivery at the far post.

The winger sent in another dangerous centre moments later and this time it was Pitman who was unable to get on the end of it.

Limbs were then flying at the other end of the pitch on 21 minutes, with Burgess and Clarke flinging themselves in front of shots from Bodin and Ollie Clarke respectively.

Both sides had a man cautioned before the break, with Stuart O’Keefe penalised for a foul on Partington and Harrison shown a yellow card for tugging back Burgess.

It looked like the players would be heading in all square at the break, but the Blues broke the deadlock – in confusing fashion – on 42 minutes.

Dion Donohue’s first cross was blocked, but his second was perfect for HAWKINS to meet at the back post.

Chris Lines made a valiant attempt to hack the ball from the line, although only succeeded in sending it into the roof of the net.

But celebrations were cut short by a linesman’s flag, only to start back up again when referee John Busby conferred with his colleague and awarded the goal.


Half Time

Portsmouth 1

Bristol Rovers 0


Donohue’s set-pieces were proving a dangerous weapon in the Blues’ armoury and one free-kick had to be punched clear.

O’Keefe then tried to convert the loose ball, only for a well-placed Harrison to boot it away and to safety.

Hawkins soon did well to steal the ball from Lockyer and draw a foul, which earned the defender his side’s second yellow card.

Pitman was way off target with the resulting free-kick, however, sending the ball high into the Fratton End.

But the Blues skipper showed some fine trickery to dribble the ball along the byline just past the hour mark, although there was nobody in the box to meet his cutback.

There was a scare at the other end when Bodin burst into the box, only for Nathan Thompson to make a fine challenge to dispossess him.

And O’Keefe then managed to get in the way of Liam Sercombe’s shot when the midfielder received the ball on the edge of the area.

But a quick Pompey break really should have resulted in the hosts extending their advantage on 75 minutes.

Thompson started the move by stealing possession and when O’Keefe delivered the ball to the far post, Hawkins could only guide it wide.

PITMAN did make sure of the victory soon after, though, meeting Matty Kennedy’s pin-point cross with a firm header that Sam Slocombe could not keep out.

Hawkins was afforded a standing ovation when he made his way off the pitch to be replaced by Gareth Evans for the final few minutes.

But PITMAN’s evening was not over and he shrugged off the challenge of Lockyer with ease before slamming home Pompey’s third goal to complete a successful night.

Pompey (4-2-3-1): McGee; Thompson, Burgess, Clarke, Donohue; Close, O’Keefe; Lowe, Pitman (c), Kennedy (Bennett 87); Hawkins (Evans 82)

ChickLit

2016

  


Plot

ChickLit is a comedy drama about four guys trying to save their local pub from closing down. They group write a chick lit, or more specifically a "mummy porn" novel, in the style of "Fifty Shades of Grey", and it gets snapped up. The only snag, is that the publisher insists that the young female "author" does press and publicity. The guys have to keep their involvement a secret, and so engage an out of work actress to "role play" the part of the author. This leads to her becoming the star in the film of the book. The tables are turned on the guys, and she is in control, leaving them with the awful prospect of having to secretly churn out sex novels for the foreseeable future.

Summary

Mildly entertaining British comedy with a good cast even if it wasn't well received generally.

I really like Abigail Breslin but she rarely seems to get the lead roles. Although she looks stunning in this film it could of been so much better. The backstory to explain how we arrived where we have is non existent

Match Report

League One


Scunthorpe United 2    0 Portsmouth

Pompey’s inconsistent start to the season continued as they left Scunthorpe on the back of a 2-0 defeat.

The damage was done in the first half, with goals from Lee Novak and Duane Holmes giving the hosts a commanding lead.

It was a much more assured performance from the Blues after the break, but they did not really do enough to warrant any return for their efforts.

Kenny Jackett made two changes from the side that beat Fleetwood so convincingly at Fratton Park the previous week.

One was enforced, with Damien McCrory’s knee injury affording Dion Donohue a chance at left-back.

The other switch was up front, with Conor Chaplin dropping to the bench to be replaced by Oliver Hawkins.

Just 12 goals had been scored in Scunthorpe’s preceding eight league games and a barren contest looked likely following a cagey opening.

But it was the hosts that were quickest to settle and Paddy Madden flashed an angled drive narrowly past the post.

Pompey then had their first sighter, although Brett Pitman’s cleanly-struck effort flew straight into the arms of Iron keeper Matt Gilks.

Scunthorpe were looking more likely to break the deadlock, however, and Novak chipped a shot against the crossbar after bundling his way into space.

And it was Novak who did give them the lead on 12 minutes, steering home after Jordan Clarke had collected Neal Bishop’s cross-field pass and sent the ball into the box.

The Blues were struggling to find any fluency, although Hawkins had a great opportunity to draw them level.

Jamal Lowe brilliantly beat his man down the right and delivered the ball into the area, only for the striker to head wide from just a few yards out.

And the visitors were made to pay for their profligacy when Scunthorpe doubled their advantage just a few moments later.

Donohue was only able to head Lewis Butroid’s teasing delivery straight to Holmes, who coolly steered the ball past Luke McGee and into the net.

Pompey kept fighting, though, and a couple of Donohue corners caused problems in the Iron defence.

The left-back’s free-kick was then headed into Christian Burgess’ path by Hawkins, but the defender mis-kicked the ball into Gilks’ arms.

However, there was an escape at the other end just before the break when Novak failed to get on the end of another excellent Butroid cross.


Half Time

Scunthorpe United 2

Portsmouth 0


Pompey, unsurprisingly, came out for the second half with a lot more urgency and Pitman bent a shot narrowly wide following good work from Matty Kennedy down the left.

The hosts then received a blow when Novak when down injured and despite trying to carry on for a few minutes, he was soon replaced by Tom Hopper.

It was the Blues who were dominating possession as the second half progressed, without being able to penetrate the Scunthorpe defence and test Gilks.

A challenge for the ball then saw Matt Clarke become the latest member of the Pompey squad to suffer a cut head and he had to be treated on the pitch by physio Bobby Bacic.

It meant the defender was left with a bandaged head, while Pitman was playing with a broken nose and Hawkins still has a huge scar above his eye.

And it was the latter who made way as Jackett made his first switch on 68 minutes, with Chaplin on to lead the line.

It was Ben Close who was next to try his luck, however, with a volley that was deflected behind after Kennedy’s floated delivery could only be partially cleared.

Jackett made another substitution soon after, as Kennedy was replaced by Kal Naismith wide on the left.

But Scunthorpe threatened to add a third goal on 74 minutes, with a long-range drive from Holmes stinging the palms of McGee.

It was still the Blues playing with more intent, but Gilks was being well protected by an organised Iron back-line.

Burgess was almost the unlikely provider of a goal on 83 minutes, volleying narrowly wide with an acrobatic effort after being picked out in space by Close.

Lowe, unlike last week, was then unable to find the net from a tight angle, as Gilks was finally forced into action.

And Scunthorpe comfortably saw out the closing stages to ensure Pompey made the long journey south without any points.

Scunthorpe (4-4-2): Gilks; Clarke, McArdle (c), Wallace, Butroid; Holmes (Mantom 79), Bishop, Ojo, Morris; Novak (Hopper 54), Madden (Burgess 84)
