Kenny Jackett has told his Pompey troops to rediscover the consistency that served them so well in the first half of the season.

A 1-1 draw with Doncaster stopped a run of league defeats but meant they slipped out of the top two for the first time since August.

Omar Bogle's second goal in two appearances rescued a point after Rovers led 1-0 at half-time but Jackett was honest about the need for the Blues to find their form again quickly.

He told the Pompey website: 'It does end our losing run in the league and we have to make sure that, with new lads coming in, we’re as cohesive and efficient as we were in the first half of the season. We had a very consistent side for a long time and we’re now waiting for things to settle – the quicker we do that, the better.

'We had the best of the first half-hour and applied a lot of pressure, but a changeover in defence has cost us. There was a bit of confusion there – which shouldn’t happen – and Wilks has gone clear to put Doncaster 1-0 up.

'Again we put a lot of pressure on them right the way through the second half and there were key chances without us being able to add to Bogle’s effort. Omar’s calf cramped up quite badly before he came off, but two goals in two games is a great start and should encourage him.

'Our opponents were always a threat on the break and ultimately for all the territorial advantage we had – which was considerable – we couldn’t turn it into the win.'

Pompey go to QPR for their FA Cup replay on Tuesday night then visit Plymouth in League One on Saturday.
