'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Application and Determination Will See Us Through

No it's not quoted from the Hokey Cokey training ground Bible, it's what Monny 'The Bruiser' O'Neill believes will see us through against Pompey.

Speaking to the official site ahead of this weekends battle Monny has said he's confident of gaining another 3 points as we have the momentum with us, we however cannot underestimate the opposition and we'll have to be on top of our game to ensure we continue our run of back to back victories.

The main worry Monny has is that Pompey found their form in the recent match against Bolton and we're very unlucky to not walk away with at least a share of the spoils, when Bolton nicked it 3-2 at the end.

The 'wounded Lion' cliche couldn't be more appropriate in his thoughts.

'They will be galled by the manner of the defeat. There was a dubious penalty decision given against them and also the last goal looked like the player might have interfered from an offside position.'

With Pompey visiting B6 with zero points they have more than enough motivation to make life difficult for us.

O'Neill is confident we'll create more than enough chances during the game, we just need to take them.

'I just think it's one of those games you can't take lightly. We're not good enough to do that anyway. I am very concerned about the game but I am also full of hope and expectation too.

'I'm sure the fans arriving at the ground will feel the same.'

Strange backhanded compliment to the squad admittedly, but if there is any justice in the world we'll take 3 points from the match because I can't see us not turning up.

We may not be playing particularly great football again (or is that still?) but we are creating chances, we look more solid at the back and as long as the players don't spend 90 minutes thinking about how much fun the new morale boosting weekly wrestling rumble at Bodymoor Heath is, we should be fine.
