MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Oldham Athletic 0 2 Portsmouth

Brett Pitman bagged a brace on his comeback, as Pompey returned to winning ways at Oldham.

The striker headed home the opener before taking advantage of some comical goalkeeping from Johny Placide to double the advantage.

With snow falling throughout the game, there were fears that it might be abandoned when play was stopped during the second half.

But it started up again and the Blues saw out the closing stages with relative ease, claiming a clean sheet to complement their three-point haul.

Kenny Jackett made two changes from the side beaten at home by Gillingham the previous week.

Pitman returned from a three-game injury absence to skipper the side, while Brandon Haunstrup also started, as Christian Burgess and Sylvain Deslandes dropped to the bench.

The snow had been falling heavily before kick-off, but bright sunshine had taken over as the sides emerged from the tunnel.

It would not be the end of the white stuff, however, with plenty more flurries following throughout the afternoon.

There were not an abundance of chances in the opening stages, although both sides looked to get forward whenever possible.

Anton Walkes’ failure to deal with a Cameron Dummigan delivery caused a few butterflies, but the right-back recovered well to clear the danger.

Placide was also giving the home support reason to be nervous, with the keeper dallying in possession on several occasions.

One instance saw Connor Ronan tackle him, only for the ball to land clear and let the maverick stopper off the hook.

A quick break presented Oldham with their best chance of the half, only for former Fratton loanee Eoin Doyle to stab his shot straight at Luke McGee.

Jamal Lowe soon had an opportunity at the other end, bursting between two defenders and seeing an effort deflected wide.

And they went even closer soon after, with Matt Clarke sending Dion Donohue’s corner into the mixer, where Jack Whatmough’s header was cleared from the line by Wilfried Moimbe.

But the deadlock was broken on 29 minutes, as PITMAN rose to meet Ronan’s cross and send a deft header past Placide and into the net.

Pompey’s skipper was also proving useful at the other end of the pitch, getting back to nod clear a corner.

The hardy travelling support were then given more reason to cheer when the Blues doubled their advantage before the break.

Placide had failed to learn the error of his ways, with PITMAN stealing the ball from his feet and slotting home from an acute angle.

Portsmouth 2


The Latics were given an opportunity to get back into the contest straight after the restart, when Clarke was booked for a foul on Craig Davies.

Kean Bryan took the free-kick from just outside the Blues box and although his effort went through the wall, it was straight into the arms of McGee.

It was becoming to difficult to spot Pompey’s white-shirted players, as the snow fell more heavily – and began to lay.

There would have been a few worried fans in the Zen Office Stand when referee Sebastian Stockbridge called a halt to proceedings.

“Off, off, off,” cried the Oldham supporters, perhaps in hope more than expectation and – following an eight-minute delay while the lines were cleared – the action resumed.

Doyle then had a couple of shots saved by McGee as the hosts tried to find a route back into the contest.

The second was closest to finding the net, with Pompey’s keeper just about getting his fingertips to it and diverting the ball over.

And McGee also dealt with a low drive from substitute Duckens Nazon, as time started to run out for Oldham.

But the Blues almost wrapped things up on 85 minutes when Pitman teed-up Kal Naismith, only for Placide to put the forward off, with Dummigan hacking the ball clear.

The earlier delay meant 11 minutes of stoppage-time were displayed by fourth official Ken Haycock, giving hope to the home support.

But it was Pompey who almost added to the scoring when Lowe cut inside from the right and drilled a low shot against the inside of the post.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Portsmouth 1 3 Gillingham

Poor form continues.

It was the proverbial game of two halves at Fratton Park, as Pompey’s poor 2018 form continued with a 3-1 defeat to Gillingham.

They dominated the opening 45 minutes and forged ahead through Jamal Lowe, only for some wasteful finishing to deny them a healthier advantage at the break.

That proved costly, as Conor Wilkinson and Lee Martin – with the latter bagging a brace – both hit the target in impressive fashion to turn the contest on its head.

Kenny Jackett made four changes from the side that were beaten at home by Blackpool a fortnight earlier.

The most noteworthy inclusion was that of Jack Whatmough, who made his first appearance since injuring his knee against Rotherham at the beginning of September.

There were also returns for Kal Naismith – playing alongside Lowe up front – Connor Ronan and Sylvain Deslandes, as Pompey switched to a 3-5-2 system.

Conor Chaplin, Matty Kennedy and Adam May all dropped to the bench, while Oli Hawkins missed out with a hamstring injury.

Before kick-off there was a minute’s applause in memory of Hall of Fame inductee Billy Wilson, who sadly passed away last month.

The Blues might have been on a poor run of form, but it did not show as they set about attacking their visitors in the opening stages.

Ben Close and Naismith both had chances from long-range and while the former’s effort was well off target, the latter’s flashed inches past the post.

And Lowe also missed a great opportunity by nodding Anton Walkes’ delivery over from just a few yards out.

But it was LOWE who broke the deadlock on 19 minutes, lashing the ball into the roof of the net following good work from Dion Donohue and Naismith.

There were cries for a penalty soon after when the ball appeared to hit Max Ehmer’s arm in the box, although referee Carl Boyeson decided the defender was unable to get out of the way.

Lowe should have extended the hosts’ advantage when Walkes’ long pass sent him racing through on goal.

But the forward spent too long getting his shot away, allowing Luke O’Neill to get back and make a timely challenge.

Pompey kept driving forward against a Gills defence who looked nervy, although keeper Tomas Holy was an assured presence between the sticks.


Half Time

Portsmouth 1

Gillingham 0


Gillingham brought on Wilkinson – who made one substitute appearance for Pompey when on loan from Bolton in 2016 – at the start of the second half.

And the striker made an immediate impact by grabbing the equaliser moments after the restart, beating three men before curling a fine finish past Luke McGee.

That, unsurprisingly, gave the visitors a lift and the Blues were forced to deal with some more pressure.

But they almost restored their lead just before the hour mark when Ronan curled a free-kick against the post.

Pompey were starting to look more of a threat again, only to then fall behind seconds after Brandon Haunstrup had come on to replace Deslandes.

A free-kick had been awarded to Gillingham before the switch and when it was played to Martin, the skipper’s curler somehow evaded everyone and bent into the net.

The hosts tried to fight back and Close’s 25-yard drive was not too far off target, while Donohue was unable to test Holy after being teed-up by Naismith.

Chaplin was brought on for Whatmough on 76 minutes, as Jackett tried to add some attacking vigour to his side.

But instead it was the Gills celebrating another goal – and it was a fantastic long-range strike from Martin that rocketed into the top corner.

Pompey tried to get forward in the closing stages and force a nervy finale, but there was to be no late drama on the south coast.
