Not that this is really going to be a shock to Pompey fans but Andrew Cole doesn`t think Pompey will be top four this season. Talk about being pessimistic!

‘If you speak to the lads who’ve been here for a while, then they’re all cock-a-hoop. They are talking about how this time last year they only had ‘x’ amount of points and that Pompey were doing this and that. We’ve already got 16 points now.

‘Everyone’s very happy and it’s about maintaining it between now and the end of the season.

‘We’ve got to try to pick up as many points as possible. Yeah, we’re in a lofty position now and hand on heart I don’t think we’re expecting to be in the top four come May.

‘But the top half of the table, in the top 10 – I think everyone will be absolutely delighted with that.’

Portsmouth are still fourth despite defeat from Chelsea but could be down to sixth after tomorrows games. The majority of Pompey fans are looking for a top ten finish?
