Pompey fans today where cheering on Villa for a second time in a week. Villa came away 3-1 winners which also leaves Pompey three points clear of the relegation zone.

Milan Baros scored two and a Gary Cahill spectacular saw Villa all but safe. Pompey have a chance on Monday to go six points clear when we travel to Charlton.

A word of warning though to all you fans that are getting carried away, don?t! If we where to loose to Charlton and Birmingham beat Blackburn at home Pompey will be back in the relegation zone.

Birmingham then have to go to; Everton away (nothing to play for), Newcastle home (nothing to play for), Bolton away (probably nothing to play for?) They are all winner able games which could see Birmingham get to 38 points and that?s presuming they loose at least one, so it isn?t over yet.

The importance of this result is huge for a number of reasons; Birmingham have a goal difference only two better than Pompey, they must loose confidence with it being an arch rival and that is the end of their mini run.
