John Marquis: Back at Millwall but hoping to return to Portsmouth

The 21-year-old striker still has two weeks left to run on his current agreement at Fratton Park, but has returned to parent employers Millwall as he has not yet been cleared to play in the FA Cup.

He packed his bags for London after being informed that he would form no part of Pompey's matchday squad for Saturday's 3-2 victory over Exeter.

The sight of him heading back to The Den with his belongings was taken by some as an indication that he would not be back.

Marquis has, however, taken to Twitter to express his desire to return to Portsmouth in the near future and fight for a place in Guy Whittingham's plans.

He said: "Just to clear things up, I am still very much a Pompey player for the remainder of my loan period.

"I was obviously bitterly disappointed not to be involved at the weekend, but by no means walked out in a strop and there wasn't any disagreement with the manager.

"The plan was to go back to Millwall to talk to the management and decide what was best for me. This is the reason I was seen leaving with all my belongings at the game on the weekend, just in case I didn't come back!

"If selected I will always put in 100 per cent for Portsmouth and show a professional attitude selected or not."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
