Linvoy Primus might be facing a long battle to return to field of play – and that is even after he has recovered from his knee injury – but as he told The News this is not a battle he is going to give up on, no matter how long it takes!

Even if he cannot play again this season he is refusing to even contemplate that his time with Pompey will come to an end: ‘I can’t set a date on when I’ll be back or even if I’ll be back this season. There are no short cuts.

‘There’s no pressure on me to try to get back to play. If I play one game and break down for the sake of that one game, is it really worth it?

‘It’s all going to plan at the moment. I could be ready in April and if it’s not and I’m ready in September instead then that’s how it is.

Originally Primus had to make 20 appearances to earn himself a contract extension, clearly this will not be possible so with his contract ending in the summer he could be deemed surplus to requirements – but I both hope and feel this will not be the case.

There is no room for sentiment, so even with this aside I really do feel that he would be more than worth keeping next season as he really does seem to improve with age so if he can make a full recovery from this injury then he would still give 110% for Pompey, and once in the side he would be hard to get out again.

Thinking from his point of view though, would it be fair on him waiting for that chance…

One thing that we know with the fella is if you write him off this only makes him more determined, so if anyone is happy to do this now and thinks that he is done with Pompey they had better mind what they say, as this could – and probably would – come back to haunt them.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
