The next goal scored at the Lane will be the 100th in the stadium this season!

The next goal scored at the Lane will be the 100th in the stadium this season!Wednesday night’s eight-goal thriller against Chelsea took the overall total for goals scored and conceded during the campaign to 99 in just 23 games – an average of 4.03 goals per game!

Coach Gus Poyet commented: “There are two points – the offensive one and the defensive one – but if you told me what you’d prefer against Chelsea, a 0-0 or 4-4, then you would go for the 4-4. It was an unbelievable game, one of the best of the season.

“So yes, we want to keep attacking but we will also be paying attention defensively because we have to be more consistent and concede fewer goals.”

The century is up for grabs when Portsmouth arrive at the Lane on Saturday.
