So now it's eight wins and three draws as Pompey's superb start to the League One season continues - with Coventry City the latest side to find them too stong.

Ronan Curtis's fine finish just before half-time proved enough to secure the Blues' second away win in four days, coming hot on the heels of the 3-1 success at Rochdale at the weekend.

Ponpey boss Kenny Jackett praised Curtis's eye for goal and his team's ability to dig in when not bossing the game as he reflected on three points that took Pompey three clear at the top of the division.

The manager told the club website: 'There were minimal chances in the game, but it was excellent quality from Ronan to get what proved to be the winner. Coventry had quite a bit possession in the second half, although I cant remember a shot that they had.

'We had two good strikes from Ben Thompson and Jamal Lowe, who were unlucky not to score at the end. So it was a tight match, with few opportunities for either side, but Im pleased to say that we took one.

'You need clean sheets theyre the important thing, especially away from home. It keeps you there or thereabouts. Coventry are a big club with aspirations of their own, so Im delighted weve come away with the three points.'
