Pompey defender Greg Halford has backed new signing Jason Pearce to be a big hit at Fratton Park.

The 23-year-old central defender signed from Bournemouth in the summer for an undiclosed fee, making a return to the club he served as an apprentice.

Pearce will have to wait to make his first start though, as he is suspended having been sent off in Bournemouth's play-off semi-final.

But Halford reckons he will soon find himself in first-team contention.


He told The News: ‘Pearcey has come in and looked very good this summer.He is an aggressive type, which sometimes is what you need. He will play his share of games this season without a doubt.

‘Going into games sometimes you need that aggression.You can’t always have that laid-back style, you can’t always go and play football the way you want it.

‘People nullify you by pushing forwards on to you so you are going to have to kick it long sometimes and it can come back over our heads.

‘You want people like Pearcy to go and head it, to go through people and to win 50/50 tackles.'
