Trevor Carson has heaped praise on the central defensive duo who have helped carry Pompey into a five-week unbeaten run.


The on-loan goalkeeper says the link-up between Sonny Bradley and Bondz N'Gala has been crucial in aiding the Blues' improved form - and predicts there is no reason why they can't go on keeping opponents at bay.

Carson told The News: 'When I was at Bury, I remember the manager (Kevin Blackwell) saying William Edjenguele and Nathan Cameron were the two best in the league. But, for me, Bondz and Sonny are definitely up there with the best I have seen at this level.

‘And I am sure they both have ambitions of playing at the higher level as they are young lads. As a goalkeeper, you sometimes get a feeling behind two centre-backs of being safe and secure – and that is what I get with them. They are strong and athletic, and 90 per cent of the balls in the air they go up and win.

‘But it’s not just the little header and it drops down – it is always 30-40 yards and it gets you 20 yards up the pitch. Both are doing really well and I’m sure they know themselves they have got to keep their form.

‘If I was a Portsmouth fan I would be excited about the prospect of those two going as a partnership. They are young lads and are only going to get better working together. In training they are always behind doing extra headers and clearances.

‘Young centre-halves at the minute in this league are a rarity. It’s mostly about experience, so to see a young partnership like those two is unusual. They are absolutely great lads, too, not big time.

‘Things won’t go to their heads, they know they’ve had a couple of good games but also know it counts for nothing.’

The pair are likely to be in the side who start at Stevenage in the FA Cup on Saturday.
