Boss’ transfer demand amid Portsmouth rivals’ relief in promotion bid



The result against Wigan Athletic on Saturday was mostly meaningless because the title was already decided.Even though Portsmouth lost 2-1 at Fratton Park, there were still celebrations following the game as John Mousinho’s team eventually took home the trophy.

Of course, Portsmouth’s festivities will have continued far into the night, but there is still plenty of football left for the clubs below them in the league standings. Not only have Derby County not yet secured second place, but the play-off berths are also up for grabs.

In light of that, let’s take a look at some more League One events.

relief from Derby

Despite having trouble getting into a rhythm, Paul Warne was relieved to see his Derby County team defeat Cambridge United on Saturday. The Rams know that a draw against Carlisle United would be sufficient to secure their place in the Championship as the season draws to a close, and they now lie three points ahead of third-place Bolton Wanderers.

Derby might have already secured promotion if other results had gone their way on Saturday, but going into the final weekend, they are heavy favorites to join Pompey in the second division.

According to Derbyshire Live, Warne stated following the game, “It is just relief really.” “We weren’t very good. All we needed to do was prevail. I had instructed the boys to be scared of the times rather than playing fearlessly.

“Make sure you pick someone up on a set-piece if it is your assigned task. It’s your duty to win tackles, so go for it. Do it if it’s a header.

“Stop worrying about the outcome. If you take care of those parts, it will take care of itself. Seeing that was horrifying. We performed no football drills. However, teams have attempted to play here and failed. It was all about coming out on top. Both the defenders and that made me very happy. They were incredible.”

Jones anticipates a busy summer.

After a challenging season at The Valley, Charlton Athletic manager Nathan Jones anticipates making significant changes to his playing roster during the upcoming summer. This season, Charlton appears set to finish 16th in League One, and the former manager of Southampton and Luton anticipates a number of important arrivals to help the team contend next year.

Jones said the South London Press, “The players have really responded since I’ve stepped in.” However, there are several things we should have done more effectively. Yes, we’ve improved, created the groundwork, and gone 14 games without a loss, but the situation could have easily turned out to be nine victories and five draws rather than the other way around.

“We intend to add several players; we are specific about the positions we wish to add them to. Each of those guys will be skilled enough to elevate the starting eleven. We have a large enough squad, thus we don’t want to add more players. We will promote both our young players and those from the academy.

“We plan to sign individuals who will improve our starting lineup. It will be a wasted summer if we don’t do that, but we will.”
