Conor Chaplin: Portsmouth teenager is lifting team-mates - Michael Doyle
Portsmouth teenager Conor Chaplin's self-belief and audacity is bringing the best out of his team-mates, says captain Michael Doyle.
Striker Chaplin, 19, helped inspire Saturday's 4-2 win over Wycombe, making it 3-2 in first-half injury time when he flicked the ball over a defender before heading home.
"He gives everyone a lift with his enthusiasm and desire," Doyle said.
"The difference from last year is that he knows how good he is."
The comeback victory over Wycombe extended Portsmouth's winning run to four league games.
Chaplin's goal came at the end of a frantic first half in which Gary Roberts put Pompey 2-1 ahead in the final minute only for Paul Hayes to level a minute into injury time.
"That is Conor to a tee. You think you are going in at half-time 2-2, but then Conor comes up with that wonder goal, it was great," Doyle told BBC Radio Solent.
"I don't think you will see too many goals better than that. It was unbelievable and probably goal of the season.
"He is able to do things that other player aren't able to do. He is a top little player, his attitude, everything about him is just brilliant."
"He is getting better and better."
