League One


 

Portsmouth    2

 


 

MK Dons    0

 


A brace from Oliver Hawkins ensured that Pompey beat MK Dons to secure successive league wins for the first time this season.

Both goals arrived in a first half that was almost completely one-sided, as the visitors struggled to deal with the Blues’ attacking play.

Hawkins was the beneficiary of some good work from the hosts’ wide players, as he converted crosses from first Matty Kennedy and then Jamal Lowe.

It was no surprise that the Dons were better after the break, but they did not do enough to test Luke McGee.

Kenny Jackett made one change from the side that won at Gillingham the previous week.

Christian Burgess had recovered from a calf injury to start in defence and make his 100th appearance for the club, allowing Hawkins to move to a more natural position up front.

A slight niggle ensured that Curtis Main was the man to miss out, with Stuart O’Keefe continuing to wear the captain’s armband in Brett Pitman’s absence.

The visitors had an early chance when Osman Sow got past Matt Clarke, only for the centre-back to recover well and win the ball back.

But after that it was a first half that saw Pompey enjoy almost total dominance, as they poured forward at every opportunity.

Kyle Bennett burst free down the right and Kennedy just got a touch to his cross to take the ball away from the advancing Lowe.

But the deadlock was broken on 14 minutes – and Kennedy had a large part to play in giving the hosts the lead.

He intercepted a sloppy pass from Ethan Ebanks-Landell and burst past the Dons defender before teeing-up HAWKINS for a powerful finish into the roof of the net.

There was a scare for both teams when Kennedy and Callum Brittain disappeared over the advertising hoardings at the Fratton End.

But the Blues winger soon reappeared and, after some treatment, the visiting right-back was able to continue.

Lee Nicholls was looking nervous between the MK Dons sticks and was perhaps lucky to win a free-kick after failing to hold Dion Donohue’s corner.

He then made a hash of dealing with Lowe’s centre and would have been relieved to see no Pompey player nearby to take advantage.

Donohue then tried his luck from 25 yards when Kennedy’s free-kick was only partially cleared, but could not send the ball on target.

With the visitors clinging on, O’Keefe was next to try his luck and Scott Wooton had to fling himself in front of the shot.

And Nicholls then charged from his line to dive on the ball following some fine work between Bennett and Lowe on the right.

MK Dons finally threatened late in the half and it took a fine challenge from Clarke to deny Sow after the striker burst through on goal.

But there was still time for Pompey to double their lead prior to the interval, as a persistent Lowe was able to cut the ball back for HAWKINS to turn home from close range.


Half Time

(2 – 0)


A Kennedy corner caused issues for the visitors just after the restart, but they were eventually able to scramble the ball clear.

Burgess then had to deal with Gboly Ariyibi’s dangerous low delivery from the right and just about managed to turn it the right side of the post.

MK Dons were looking more of a threat in the second half, but McGee was still a virtual spectator between the sticks.

And Hawkins had a chance to complete a hat-trick on the hour mark, only to swipe at thin air as he tried to convert Kennedy’s cross.

Bennett then missed another decent chance to put the result beyond doubt, firing wide when Lowe’s centre somehow found its way to his feet.

MK Dons might have made the most of that let-off and the Blues survived a couple of nervy scrambles in their box.

Ed Upson then whipped a free-kick into a crowded box and McGee did well to find his way through the bodies and punch clear.

Kennedy received a rousing reception from the Fratton faithful when he made way for Gareth Evans for the closing stages.

And Pompey saw out the final few minutes with relative ease to secure all three points on the sunny south coast.

Gillingham    0

 


 

Porstmouth    1

 


Matty Kennedy scored early in the second half to ensure Pompey picked up all three points at Gillingham.

The winger converted after Curtis Main’s header had come back off the woodwork to give the large travelling army – and all those watching live on Sky Sports – plenty to cheer.

A one-goal advantage ensured it was a nervy finale at Priestfield, but the struggling hosts never really looked like claiming an equaliser.

Kenny Jackett made two changes from the side beaten by Oldham in Pompey’s last league outing.

Striker Main was handed a first league start in more than a year in place of the injured skipper Brett Pitman.

Drew Talbot dropped to the bench to make way for Kyle Bennett, with Oliver Hawkins continuing to be deployed as a makeshift centre-back.

Nathan Thompson – who went off against the Latics with concussion – was declared fit to feature at right-back, but the game came too soon for Christian Burgess.

The watching television audience might have been forgiven for reaching for their remote, as the game took a while to find its flow.

In fact, the most noteworthy moment in the opening stages was the continuing efforts of various Priestfield staff to replace a dislodged corner flag.

Kennedy tried his luck with a curling right-footed effort, but the ball flew safely into the arms of Gills keeper Tomas Holy.

A delightful delivery from the outside of Jamal Lowe’s boot caused some problems, with Josh Parker having to head clear.

It was Ben Close who had the first decent chance on 20 minutes, though, with Holy having to get down to deal with his low drilled effort.

And a dangerous centre from Bennett flashed across the face of goal, with none of his white-shirted team-mates able to get a touch.

But the hosts grew in confidence as the first half progressed and thought they should have won a penalty on 34 minutes.

Hawkins’ challenge sent Sean Clare tumbling to the ground, only for referee Christopher Sarginson to ignore the appeals.

Pompey won a trio of corners before the break and two of them were met by Matt Clarke, but the defender sent both wide of the target.

It was Gillingham who ended stronger, though, and Parker volleyed narrowly past the post after being picked out by Lee Martin.


Half Time

(0 – 0)


Pompey came tearing out of the traps at the start of the second half and were ahead after just 26 seconds.

Thompson whipped a cross in from the right and when Main’s header came back off the post, KENNEDY was waiting to stroke home the loose ball.

And Thompson might have added a second, with a cross that drifted towards goal and dipped narrowly over.

It was the visitors looking more likely to add to the scoring and a long-range attempt from Kennedy was not too far off target.

Hawkins then met another Kennedy corner, although his header lacked enough power to trouble Holy.

But Gillingham thought they had grabbed an equaliser when Finn O’Mara’s cross was converted by Parker.

The home fans leapt from their seats to celebrate before realising that the linesman had raised his flag for offside.

Jackett was forced to make his first change moments later, as Dion Donohue limped off to be replaced by Brandon Haunstrup.

Pompey had a chance to extend their lead when Bennett broke quickly on 74 minutes, but he took too long to find Lowe, whose effort was blocked.

Gareth Evans and Danny Rose were brought in for the closing stages, with Bennett and Close withdrawing to the bench.

But it was Clarke who almost grabbed a second goal for the Blues late on, diverting Kennedy’s free-kick inches past the post.

Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter. One of the leading contemporary recording artists, she is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed with the label Big Machine Records and became the youngest artist ever signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house. Her self-titled debut album in 2006 peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 and spent the most weeks on the chart in the 2000s. The album’s third single, “Our Song”, made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. Swift’s second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the success of pop crossover singles “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me”, Fearless became the best-selling album of 2009 in the United States. The album won four Grammy Awards, with Swift becoming the youngest Album of the Year winner.

Swift was the sole writer of her 2010 album, Speak Now. It debuted at number one in the United States and the single “Mean” won two Grammy Awards. Her fourth album, Red (2012), yielded the successful singles “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble”. With her fifth album, the pop-focused 1989 (2014), she became the first act to have three albums sell a million copies within one week in the United States. Its singles “Shake It Off”, “Blank Space”, and “Bad Blood” reached number one in the US, Australia, and Canada. The album received three Grammy Awards, and Swift became the first woman and fifth act overall to win Album of the Year twice. The 2015 concert tour for 1989 became one of the highest-grossing of the decade. Swift’s sixth album, Reputation (2017) and its lead single “Look What You Made Me Do” topped the UK and US charts.

As a songwriter, Swift has received awards from the Nashville Songwriters Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was included in Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015. She is also the recipient of 10 Grammy Awards, five Guinness World Records, one Emmy Award, 21 Billboard Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards, and one Brit Award. Swift is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 40 million albums—including 27.8 million in the US—and 130 million single downloads. She has appeared in Time’s 100 most influential people in the world (2010 and 2015), Forbes’ top-earning women in music (2011–2015), Forbes’ 100 most powerful women (2015), and Forbes Celebrity 100 (2016). She was the youngest woman to be included in the third of these, ranked first in Celebrity 100 and was named Time Person of the Year in 2017 as part of the “Silence Breakers”.
