SAINTS U23 defenders Alfie Jones and Tom O’Connor celebrated a clean sheet at Pompey on Saturday.

The pair played the full 90 minutes of their latest game of their loan spell with Gillingham, a goalless draw at Fratton Park.

Together they ensured Pompey failed to score at home for only the second time this season - the other occasion being Saints’ 4-0 win at Fratton Park last month.

Gills fans have been impressed with the loan pair. 




Jones, 22, is on a season-long loan with Steve Evans’ team, while O’Connor is with the Kent outfit until January. 

But if they keep up their impressive form they may be recalled sooner.
