GW: Confidence is building

Portsmouth caretaker boss Guy Whittingham says his side need time to build their confidence after a 1-1 home draw with Carlisle.

Rory Loy put the visitors ahead after 51 minutes before a Liam Walker penalty rescued Pompey a point with 12 minutes left.

The Blues have now gone 21 games without a victory but Whittingham believes Pompey's first win since October 20 is within reach, despite watching his side sink to the bottom of the League One table.

He said: "Confidence is the biggest thing for any footballer. If they're confident in their ability and confident when they go out there with their team-mates week in and week out, they'll play better. It's improving.

"I think the players feel themselves that things are changing slightly. It's not going to be a quick turnaround when you're coming off the back of the run we've had and you're in the run we're in.

"It's a point and it's probably one we might have lost a few weeks ago and heads might have gone down after we went a goal down. So that shows there is a spirit building there."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
