Portsmouth midfielder Michael Doyle hopes supporters will be patient after two home league games without a win.

Pompey relinquished top spot in League Two after defeat by Exeter was followed by a goalless draw against Yeovil.

Paul Cook's side have won just two of their five home league games so far this season, but are unbeaten away.

"Teams are coming here and sitting back with loads of players behind the ball, so it's hard to break down," Doyle told BBC Radio Solent.

"It's frustrating," the former Sheffield United player added.

"But, I'm positive that we will get it right and long term, it will be worth the while once it clicks together and chances start going in.

"Not one team has really come out and tried to play against us at Fratton Park. We've been the aggressors in every game and teams pack the midfield and the defence.

"I'm sure we're not far from the stage where we will start to dominate teams."
