ON THE PERFORMANCE AGAINST WIGAN: It looked like it would peter out for a draw, which would have been a decent enough point. But we didn t play with the quality that I think we are capable of. We have to defend for our lives. We gave a soft corner away
ON THE PERFORMANCE AGAINST WIGAN: "It looked like it would peter out for a draw, which would have been a decent enough point.
"But we didn't play with the quality that I think we are capable of. We have to defend for our lives. We gave a soft corner away from a poor defensive header.
"And then they came in and wanted to get on the end of it a little bit more than we did - and that was the result. There are still an awful lot [of players] who can do a lot better than they are doing.
"We need some improved performances, especially away from home. We have thrown three games away in the last minutes of each match - that cannot be right."
ON SIGNING MORE PORTSMOUTH PLAYERS AFTER JERMAIN DEFOE: "I would have gone back and taken Glen Johnson but I didn't want to get involved and cause problems.
"Defoe was different. They wanted to sell Defoe. Man City were in for him - there were a few clubs in for him.
"He was up in the open market but they didn't want to sell Johnson. I've not gone near him. They wanted to keep him and he's signed a new contract, which is great for the club.
