Boss Cotterill Makes Plea To One Of Pompey's Championship Rivals

Steve Cotterill is hoping Swansea will see the benefit of allowing his namesake David to stay at Fratton Park. The Welsh winger is unlikely to feature much in the Swans first team and Pompey reckon it suits everyone for him to be allowed to spend another month at Fratton. It would increase competition for places across the midfield as Liam Lawrence returns to full ....

Defender's Verdict On Pompey's Fading Play-off Hopes

Ricardo Rocha is taking a ‘you never know’ view as the debate rages over whether Pompey can still push for the play-offs. The Portuguese defender has been a key member of a team which has secured seven clean sheets in eight. He was frustrated the Blues could not turn possession into a win against Boro on Saturday, and has also been reflecting on a year at Fratton which has never been ....

What Pompey Need To Do To Make The Play-offs

Liam Lawrence reckons a win at Leicester next weekend can reignite Pompey's play-off push - but he admits they probably need to win all their remaining nine games to make a top-six finish. The Irishman had mixed feelings after making his comeback from injury in the 0-0 Fratton Park draw with Middlesbrough. He was delighted to be back - but gutted the Blues hadn't managed the win their ambitions ....

Boro Are The New Pompey - And That Makes Them Dangerous

Steve Cotterill has warned that Pompey’s next opponents, Middlesbrough, are fighting to get away from the Championship danger zone just like the Blues have done in recent weeks. The Pompey boss is wary of the threat Tony Mowbray’s team will bring to Fratton Park as they bid to pull away from danger. They beat Derby at the Riverside in midweek and have picked up useful points in ....

I'm Loving My New Pompey Role

Joel Ward has thanked his team-mates for helping him take to his new midfield role like a duck to water. The converted defender’s displays in a new floating role have put him among the fronteunners for the player-of-the-season prizes. The Emsworth lad’s form has been a key ingredient of Pompey’s recent winning run and he shone again as the sequence came to an end at Bristol ....

Clash Of Form Teams Will Be A Tough Test For Pompey

  It’s hard to preview a Pompey game and concentrate on that game at the moment. Games aren’t games on their own merits any more – for the time being, they are part of the bigger picture. In the case of Pompey’s trip to Bristol City, it’s all about whether they can gain a seventh straight win and clean sheet. This 100 per cent run ....

The Unlikely Heroes Who Are The Toast Of Pompey

  Steve Cotterill has paid tribute to two of the unlikely heroes of Pompey’s recent winning run. He praised Hermann Heidarsson and Jamie Ashdown for their part in the win over Sheffield United and the victories that have preceded it. Last summer, you would have been foolish to think either player had much part to play in this campaign. Ashdown was released by ....

One Of Those Nights For Pompey? Not In The Way Kitson Feared

Dave Kitson says he feared it was going to be one of those nights when he missed a chance against Scunthorpe - only to end his Fratton end drought a few minutes and spark a win he says Pompey must still look to build on in the coming games. Kitson, who got the first in the 2-0 win over The Iron, says the up and down nature of the Blues' season so far means they can take nothing for granted about ....

Nugent Closes In On Goals Target For Pompey

David Nugent hopes to get another step closer to his goals target by making it three in three games when Pompey host Scunthorpe on Tuesday night. The striker scored the opener at Ipswich and set up the second for David Cotterill – four days after making it double figures for the season with the winner against Crystal Palace.

Pompey Head For Mid-table Tussle That's Not About Mid-table Mediocrity

Pompey lose a few games and everyone’s predicting relegation. They then win a handful and it’s play-offs this, play-offs that. Is it like this at all clubs? Probably. The Championship table might be tightly-packed but the chances are Pompey are not going up nor down when the season ends on May 7. And the same is probably true of Ipswich, whose good recent run has carried them well ....

Cotteril Hails His 'new Team' For Turning Pompey Fortunes Around

How Will Pompey Boss Change A Winning Team?

Pompey boss Steve Cotterill will have to weigh up how to change a winning team if Liam Lawrence wins his battle to be fit for the mid-table clash at Ipswich on Saturday. Lawrence has been using an oxygen chamber to speed up his recovery from a calf tear. Meanwhile, the goal hero of the win over Palace says the Blues can still dare to dream about finishing in the top six, even though the number ....

Chainrai Speaks - But Does He Tell Us Anything New?

There will have been plenty of people watching the Sky Sports News special report on Pompey’s plight who learned something new – but most Blues fans will not have been among them.

Iceman Aids Pompey's Climb - But Says It Has To Continue

It’s no surprise that Pompey’s improved form has coincided with Hermann Hreidarsson’s return to the starting line-up. The Fratton favourite has been a big influence as Pompey have picked up two wins and a draw from their last three games – and he is now targeting a continued improvement at home to ensure the Blues climb the table.

This Time Pompey Could Do With A Hat-trick For Something

Hard to believe it’s nine years since Barnsley last visited Fratton Park. That was the day Robert Prosinecki scored a ‘hat-trick for nothing’ as Linvoy Primus was somehow sent off for punching an opponent (!) and the Tykes hit back from 4-2 down to draw 4-4. Pompey must hope they defend better in this game than they did that day as they bid to make Fratton a fortress again, or ....

Pompey Boss Demands Side Put Oakwell Nightmare Behind Them

Steve Cotterill is demanding Barnsley's visit to Fratton Park is when Pompey must show they are better than their performance at Oakwell in November suggested. The Blues were below-par and on a bad run of form when they lost 1-0 in South Yorkshire and Cotterill says this weekend's game is a chance to show they have come on since then. He's also backing Dave Kitson to go on a scoring run after ....

International Ex-premier League Winger On Way To Fratton

Winger David Cotterill is set to arrive at Fratton Park - effectively as John Utaka's replacement - on loan from Swansea. The Wales international will fill a void created when Pompey sold Utaka and then failed in bids to replace him with another attacker at the end of the transfer window. Cotterill has fallen out of favour at the Liberty Stadium and has not played for six ....

Pompey Midfielder Outlines His Premier League Aim

Jonathan Hogg says it is brilliant being at Pompey - a club he hopes can help him get back into the Premier League. The on-loan midfielder is hopeful the experience he gains over the rest of the season in the Championship at Fratton will make him a better player, and get into Gerard Houllier's Villa side when he returns to Villa Park. His progress has been stopped in its tracks for now by a red ....

Rocha Hails New-look Defence - Will Cotterill Keep Them Together?

Has Steve Cotterill finally found the right defensive blend? It’s a bit early to say that after one clean sheet – their first in 11 games – but Ricardo Rocha was certainly impressed by the way the new-look back four performed at Doncaster. Many Pompey fans feel Rocha is the key man to have at the heart of defence and it looks like Aaron Mokoena and Ibrahima Sonko may face a ....

Just When You Thought Pompey Had Had All The Complications They Could...

Pompey probably thought they'd had every sort of selection problem going this season. Then skipper Aaron Mokoena went and got stuck in South Africa. A visa problem means Mokoena will be unable to return to the UK in time for the crucial trip to the Keepmoat Stadium. It comes after a host of problems in team selection, including contract wrangles, that have affected Steve Cotterill almost from ....

Are The Russians Coming To Pompey? And With Action Not Words?

Pompey fans have heard enough tall tales in the past couple of years about Arabs, Russians, Liverpudlians, anyone about to ride to the rescue of their club to last them a lifetime. So few will be getting too excited about the latest talk of a Moscow group interested in becoming the latest in a long line of PFC owners. But at the same time, some may take the view that no group can be much worse ....
