John Mousinho’s Team Sets Impressive Late-Goal Record in English Football

Mousinho’s squad has found the net in the 90th minute or beyond on five occasions this season in the league. This remarkable achievement places them at the top of the late-goal scoring charts across all four divisions of English football. Even more impressive is the fact that no other team has amassed as many points from these late-game heroics, totaling six crucial points so far.

Central defender Conor Shaughnessy embodies the team’s never-say-die spirit, making two vital injury-time contributions in three league matches. His match-winning goal against Carlisle on the weekend mirrored his earlier impact 18 days prior when he converted a stoppage-time winner against Wycombe.

Kusini Yengi (2) and Colby Bishop have also basked in the glory of being late-game heroes. Yengi’s last-minute effort salvaged a point on the opening day against Bristol Rovers. While his 90th-minute penalty against Leyton Orient didn’t alter the game’s outcome as Pompey were already leading 3-0, it showcased their resilience.

Bishop’s late intervention against Derby, on the other hand, was indeed a game-changer. It secured a crucial point for the Blues at Pride Park and contributed to their impressive unbeaten streak.

Curious how Pompey’s late-scoring statistics compare to other teams across the top four divisions of English football? Here’s what we found.
