Abbott – That’s more like it
Carlisle looked to be heading for a 2-0 victory until a late
burst of goals and a Portsmouth fightback, which had the Cumbrians
reeling for a time.
Abbott said: “I asked for a response from Tuesday’s defeat
against Tranmere and I got it.
“The players showed more effort and in the first 20 minutes they
showed what we are all about.
“Everyone has been working for this result since Tuesday. As
long as the players give that honesty and level of performance I
will be happy.”
Abbott added: “Was it a classic? Definitely not. Was it full of
effort and determination? It surely was. Compared to Tuesday it was
chalk and cheese.”
