“Portsmouth are such a strong physical side. Today, we deserved the win but it was very tight. Credit to our boys for working so hard.”

“Matt [Bloomfield] has taken another knock to the head today, and Nnamdi [Ofoborh] has been sent off. He was in tears after that, but he didn’t let us down, we’re all one family.”


“They have got some really good players and are a massive club. Sometimes it just doesn’t click and then all of a sudden it does. I know Kenny, he is a great guy and Joe (Gallen) is a great coach. I have a lot of respect for those two and it’s a nice result because he is a top, top manager. I think Portsmouth are going to click and start taking some teams apart. They have too much quality and too many big names not to be winning games. It’s a great result because I think Portsmouth are going to starting firing soon. I’d back Kenny Jackett. Like I say, he is an old friend and was part of the coaching team when we got promoted with QPR in 2003. I have nothing but respect for him. It is football and it happens. As managers, we take the rough with the smooth.”
