Sylvain Distin has warned his Pompey team-mates they must find their form again if they expect to propser in the FA Cup final.

The defeat at Middlesbrough means they have now played four games without a win, and have lost three in a row.

Distin felt Pompey got what they deserved at the Riverside. He told The News: 'It is exactly the same as what happened for the past three or four weeks now. We didn't deserve to win and we didn't deserve anything at all.

'We didn't perform, there was a lack of desire, we didn't match their work-rate and it is getting dangerous for the final now. If you can't perform in the Premier League, how can we expect to perform in the final?

'We've stopped doing the basics well. If it worked from the start of the season, why should we stop now?'

Distin said he was at a loss to explain why the Blues had played poorly for three games in a row, but insisted he did not expect the run to continue.

'We've had our backs against the wall for three games,' he said. 'We were one point away from fifth place three or four games ago and every time, we didn't respond. But I don't expect our team to play five bad games in a row. That won't happen.'

Pompey's final game in the league is on Sunday against Fulham - who need to win to make sure they stay up.
