This is Glasgow Celtic's stadium. We played Barcelona at their peak in the Champions League. Our captain couldn't play because of injury, our first choice striker and a couple of other first choice players couldn't play because of injury....so no-one gave us a chance, not one of the TV "experts" said we could win. They had Messi, Xavi, Mascerano,  etc etc, all at their peak. Feel the best atmosphere of ANY stadium in Europe......this is Glasgow Celtic!!!! We won 2-1 by the way!!!

Whatmough Returns As Reserves Draw With Foxes

Medium

Jack Whatmough returned to action as Pompey Reserves bowed out of the Premier League Cup with a 1-1 draw against Leicester at Nyewood Lane.

 

The centre-back played the opening 45 minutes in his first match since suffering a serious knee injury early in September.

 

Brandon Haunstrup was another defender to feature following a spell on the sidelines, while there were also starts for Conor Chaplin and trialist Jonathan Douglas.

 

Previous results meant the Blues could not qualify for the knockout stages and they were denied victory when Josh Eppiah’s late leveller cancelled out a goal from Leon Maloney.

 

Pompey made the brighter start and Theo Widdrington sent a free-kick wide, before Bradley Lethbridge was just off target when he snuck in to meet Chaplin’s cross.

 

Leicester might have been sitting at the top of the table, but they were offering little threat going forward.

 

Whatmough almost managed to punish them at the other end, although his effort was sent over the crossbar.

 

The hosts went even closer soon after, with Dan Smith not quite able to keep his header down after meeting Lethbridge’s left-wing delivery.

 

Alex Bass was finally called into action on 32 minutes, getting down well to deny Hamza Choudhury from Harvey Barnes’ cut-back.

 

It was the Blues who ended the half on the attack, though, and when the lively Chaplin laid the ball off, Jez Bedford fired past the post.

 

Half Time: Pompey 0 Leicester 0

 

Whatmough was, as planned, withdrawn at the break, being replaced in the back-line by teenager Joe Hancott.

 

Leicester improved once the game restarted and were immediately on the front foot, with Bass doing well to keep out a shot from Barnes.

 

The hosts were then forced into another change, as Maloney came on for Lethbridge following a heavy collision.

 

Chaplin was still proving a handful and saw an effort saved, but the Foxes were now providing much more of a test.

 

Bass had to be at his best to make two superb stops in quick succession, first from Barnes and then Eppiah.

 

But the Blues took the lead against the run of play on 70 minutes, with MALONEY meeting Bedford’s centre and finding the bottom corner.

 

Leicester put their opponents under intense pressure as they searched for an equaliser and Barnes was just off target following some good build-up play.

 

But they got their reward four minutes from time, as Liandro Martis sent the ball in from the right and Eppiah was there to fire home.

 

"It was great to see Jack return to action and there was plenty of hard-work from every member of a young side."

Portsmouth defeat tough to take

Saturday’s defeat to Portsmouth was a tough result to take for Dan Micciche’s MK Dons, who must pick themselves up quickly ahead of an important trip to Oldham Athletic on Tuesday.

The Dons looked on course to secure a 1-0 victory over Pompey earlier this weekend but two goals in the final 10 minutes from the visitors saw them leave Stadium MK with all three points.

 

Attention for Micciche & Co now turns to their Sky Bet League One clash at Oldham Athletic, where they will be looking to bounce back and return to winning ways.

 

“When you lose with 20 seconds to go, it's a bitter pill to swallow because we know we have to pick up points,” Micciche said in his post-match press conference.

 

“I felt we deserved at least a point but we are where we are because of what happens in the final third and the defending third. [The goals we conceded] were two disappointing, avoidable goals - these aren't ‘worldies' into the top corner that we are conceding so we have to fix it quickly.

 

“We also have to take our chances. We created great chances but their keeper had a great game.”

 

He continued: “It's tough to take but as the manager I have to move on and lift the players and staff, and move on to Oldham.

 

“We're all in this together. The squad and fans are with us and we just have to keep at it. We know we're running out of games but things can change quickly. If we stick at it and we're better in both boxes, things will change.”

 

Here’s what else Micciche had to say in his post-match press conference…
On the change of formation…
“We have to look at ourselves, first and foremost, and see what suits our personnel. We felt this was the right formation for us today. These are things you usually work on in pre-season but we're doing it in the middle of February. For an hour of the game, we looked like an MK Dons team everyone wants.”

 

On Peter Pawlett…
“Peter did some really good things today. We all know he's a good player. Unfortunately, he took a knock in the first half and we couldn't afford to risk him with the rest of the players we have out at the moment.”

 

On the unavailable players…
“We will have to assess them. Chuks will be ready for Tuesday but the others we will have to see in the next 48 hours.”
