Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett admits Omar Bogle’s fitness has been a cause for frustration following his loan move from Cardiff City. Cramp once again was an issue for Bogle after he was forced off after a good chance to score during Pompey’s 3-3 draw with Southend on Saturday.
It is not the first time the Bluebirds striker has had the complaint and Jackett has vented his frustration about the player’s fitness on his arrival from south Wales to Portsmouth.
Jackett said: “It was a bit frustrating for Omar. He cramped up in the second half and was limping really. He couldn’t find the power in his shot when he went through. It was a big chance. “He was feeling those calves and limping. But he’ll get fitter the more he plays. For us, we’ve been pleased with what he’s done. “We hope he can keep going and be at threat. In the second period of games, we have to make sure we can get him through longer and longer to be effective.”
