Hart’s looking for more from Portsmouth's attack

Portsmouth manager Paul Hart says his side must start hitting the net as they bid to clamber over the Barclays Premier League survival line this week.

Caretaker boss Hart has seen the Fratton Park recovery he started three months ago falter in the last four games, as Portsmouth have failed to score against Manchester United, Newcastle, Arsenal and Blackburn.

They remain in relegation danger, and the former Leeds and Nottingham Forest defender said: "You could argue we should have stuck this away well before now. We have been creating chances, it has been finishing them that has been the problem."

Portsmouth’s last two games are at home to fellow strugglers Sunderland on Monday and away to Wigan.
