I'd love to put a Pompey shirt on by end of the season

Danny Webber hopes to follow in Hermann Hreidarsson's footsteps and play competitively for Pompey before the end of the season. The pair both suffered serious injuries on the same day at Spurs last season and now that the Icelandic defender is back in the frame, former Sheffield United and Watford striker Webber is keen for a similar comeback.

Webber won't put a date on when he hopes to be in action but is now training again - and paying tribute to the way boss Steve Cotterill has led the squad this season.


Webber told the Pompey website: 'It’s a big relief getting out there on a pitch again. I hadn’t played football for nearly 12 months, so I loved every minute of being back in the action. Even so I’m still trying to step it up slowly as my main concern through the whole process has been taking each day as it comes, making sure I was okay to return.

'It was always important to be back when I felt right, and I do now. I was never looking to cut any corners, because it was a big injury. But now I’m simply aiming to stay fit. Any minutes I get on the pitch in a competitive game between now and the end of the season will be tremendous.'

Webber also praised Cotterill's positivity, something which must have helped Webber through his rehab as much as it has helped Pompey beat the odds to remain in outside contention for a play-off spot.

'Steve has done a terrific job this season, which has been down to a positive mentality more than anything else. If you have a winning mentality then it rubs off on all the players. The gaffer has had that from day one and it’s been infectious,' Webber said.

'Being in our position in the table makes it a less pressurised situation if I was to return at some stage this season, but then again you never know because there is still a possibility of sneaking into a play-off position. So for both myself and the team it’s just a matter of wait and see.'
