Portsmouth: Aaron McCarey ready to fill goalkeeper void

Aaron McCarey has made seven senior appearances for Wolves

Aaron McCarey feels he has "a point to prove" when he makes his loan debut for Portsmouth against Bristol Rovers in League Two on Saturday.

The 23 year-old goalkeeper signed a one-month emergency loan deal from Wolves on Thursday.

He goes straight into Paul Cook's side due to injuries to fellow keepers Paul Jones, Brian Murphy and Michael Poke.

"It's a great opportunity for me where I'm hoping to help Portsmouth out," he told BBC Radio Solent.

Former Walsall and York City loanee McCarey has not played a first-team match in more than a year so was delighted to answer the call to help Pompey out.

"Once I heard Portsmouth were interested, I wanted to come straightaway," he said.

"I need a run of games and I've got a point to prove to a couple of people, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm really happy to be at a club of this stature and I'm really looking forward to getting going."
