Portsmouth manager John Mousinho hopes Connor Ogilvie’s injury isn’t ‘too severe’ after he was pulled off in the win over Barnsley.
On Tuesday night, Portsmouth maintained their perfect start to the League One season and climbed to the top of the standings. Mousinho’s side returned to Fratton Park with all three points after a 3-2 away triumph over an in-form Barnsley side.

Pompey led 3-0 after goals from Colby Bishop, Paddy Lane, and defender Ogilvie. The latter was forced off in the second half, raising worries considering his constant presence in the lineup.

Following the game, Mousinho told The News that despite the ‘unfortunate’ injury, he hoped it wasn’t too serious. He stated:

Ogilvie: We Imposed Ourselves - News - Portsmouth

“Connor only felt his groin a little bit in the second half.” He rarely suffers muscular ailments, which is fortunate because we have a capable deputy in Sparksie.

“It’s a bit unfortunate, but I don’t think it’s too bad.” We’ll have to look into it.”

Mousinho also provided information on some of the other players who were absent on Tuesday night. Zak Swanson was unexpectedly left out of the team, which the Portsmouth manager stated was due to a family matter.

Centre-back With foot and hamstring injuries, Sean Raggett and Christian Saydee were also ruled out.
