Pompey’s 3-2 match 19-year-old hero issues a stunning statement after his crucial goal in remarkable victory…

Terry Devlin, the goal-scoring hero for Pompey in their recent 3-2 come-from-behind victory at Reading, expressed his surprise at being included in the starting lineup. Devlin’s crucial goal secured three points for his team after they had fallen behind 2-0.

The dramatic turn of events saw Tino Anjorin and Colby Bishop scoring to level the game at 2-2 by halftime. Bishop’s goal, occurring deep into injury time in the first half, was amid a disruption caused by Reading fans throwing tennis balls onto the pitch in protest of the club’s ownership.

Pompey’s victory extended their unbeaten league run to 26 games, dating back to March, and established a six-point lead at the top of League One.

Devlin, still buzzing with excitement, shared his feelings after the game, stating that the goal was a surreal moment for him, and the crowd’s reaction was electric. He credited his goal to good teamwork with Colby Bishop, mentioning that they had been working on their timing and runs into the box after training. Devlin acknowledged that he had missed a few opportunities before but seized this chance.

Devlin, who had been eagerly anticipating his chance, expressed confidence in the team’s ability to mount a comeback, stating that they were always ready to “flip a switch” and were determined to secure the victory.
