More to do with Ward's positioning being 12 yards off his line, any need? Probably not. He was also extremely lucky the Pompey chance at 0-0 was straight at him when he was stood in line with the post rather than the middle of the goal.If you think Jonny would have saved their second then he has just grown half a foot when no one was looking. The deflection off Kite was a cruel one that looped over Ward. If Ward couldn't reach it, how could Maxted?
Agree about Marquis being the ref's cousin.
Let's be honest, no matter how long added time there is/was/should have been, to be 2-1 up in a football match when the clock hits 90 minutes to still lose the game in normal time is completely unacceptable whether you are Brazil, Man City or Green Gables. To make things worse, Lewis Ward is about 9ft7 and has been lobbed from 30 yards for the Pompey 2-2 equaliser goal, waving at the ball on the way past. When's Maxted back?
I'm happy to accept you prefer Lewis Ward but Jonny Maxted played considerably better when Ward was injured, than Ward has at the start of the season, or since Jonny got injured.Apart from the Lewis Ward comment. The shot flicked off Harry Kite leaving him stranded. He is the best of our two keepers.
They are both good keepers who have played well this season. Maxted took a run of games to get going and cut out the mistakes. Coming back from a broken arm is always going to take a while to get full confidence.I did think ward was the best of the two but I am more in favour of maxted as I feel ward is to cautious since his injury.
