Portsmouth fans delighted with Ben Thompson

Portsmouth continued their impressive start to the 2018-19 campaign with a 2-1 win away to Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.

Kenny Jackett’s side have won all four of their League One matches in the early stages of the new season to sit second in the table behind Peterborough United.

The Portsmouth fans were extremely impressed with the performance of goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray on Tuesday night, but midfielder Ben Thompson has also been widely praised.

The 22-year-old joined Portsmouth on loan from Millwall last week having been deemed surplus to requirements at the Championship club this season.

Thompson was a class act against Bristol Rovers, and the 5ft 11in ace brings plenty of League One experience to Pompey having featured regularly in the division for Millwall between 2015 and 2017.

Portsmouth certainly have the credentials to enjoy a very successful campaign, and Thompson could turn out to be a very smart signing by head coach Jackett.
