Like everyone in the Pompey squad, David Nugent is desperate to play his way into contention for a place against Cardiff in the FA Cup final.

And he is hoping he has taken the first step towards realising that dream with a goal for the reserves at West Leigh Park.

He helped the seconds to a 1-1 draw against Reading, but realises he will need to get a look-in at first-team level in the remaining league games if he's to have any hope of playing at Wembley.

Nugent told The News: 'I was due a goal, I've not played many games this season so it was nice to on this occasion.

'My right foot is stronger. My left is just for standing on really but when I swing it sometimes it goes in and sometimes it goes into the crowd.

'It's massive for my confidence. I should have actually scored a few more. I missed a couple of chances, but you've got to be there to miss them.

'I thought I worked hard up there on my own again and I enjoyed it. It's now down to me to keep playing and getting match fitness to change the gaffer's mind in the forthcoming weeks for the FA Cup final.'

What would your starting-line and subs' bench be for the final, assuming everyone is fit? Would you go 4-4-2 or 4-5-1? Who plays up front? Which midfielders get left over? What cover do we need on the bench?
