Guy Whittingham: Went easy on his goalscorer

The teenage midfielder popped up in the penalty area with 15 minutes to go to tuck away Patrick Agyemang's low cross and secure a point for lowly Pompey against table-toppers Doncaster.

"He was supposed to be wing-back at the time, but somehow he ended up in the penalty box," said Whittingham.

"That's the asset he's got, he can run and get around the pitch.

"The ball went underneath David Connolly's foot and fell nicely for Jed. It was his best pass of the game to put the ball in the back of the net."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
