Reaction: Freestone on Portsmouth

3 November 2021

After scoring his first professional goal of his career on Tuesday night at Portsmouth, Lewis Freestone felt Cheltenham Town were not too far away from nicking all three points from their visit to Fratton Park.

The young defender scored after just a few minutes into the game to net his first goal in senior football and an important opener against the former Premier League side.

He then stood firm in the defensive line as the Robins took a point from the game in front of a crowd of over 14,000, where he felt they could have taken home even more for the team's efforts.

"We were unfortunate not to get the three points away from home, it would have been nice," he said.

"We definitely had a lot of chances to score another one but the boys saw the game out well.

"Young Grant (Horton) came on as well. I thought he was brilliant.

"On another day we probably take the three points.

"They had a couple of scrappy chances but the boys did well to throw their bodies in front of it.

"We had a big chance in the first half, a couple in the second half. It felt like we were on top more first half - some nice patterns of play that we got out from - and in the second half the last 15, 20 minutes we dug deep and managed to get the point."

The defender will be looking to be involved once again on Saturday when the team travel to Gillingham for a 2pm kick-off in the FA Cup first round.
