Crouch adds his backing to Wright-Phillips bid

Crouch adds his backing to Wright-Phillips bid

Since his return Peter Crouch has already said that he would be happy to finish his career with Pompey, now he has added his support to the bid to bring Chelski winger Shaun Wright-Phillips to the club.

Harry Redknapp has repeatedly expressed his desire to land the England man and speaking to Radio Solent on the matter Crouch added: 'Shaun is a fantastic player. If the manager can pull the signing off, it would be great for everyone here.'

I do not think that there are many Pompey fans who would not want us to sign the player, but all we can do is sit and wait and see if he can become 'top quality' signing number 2...

Speaking of Crouch, he and Jermain Defoe will start together for the first time tonight when we face Bournemouth. We also face Dorchester as well with David James playing in that game. Both games are expected to feature strong sides, with most players likely to get the full 90 minutes.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

2016-17 Pompey Player of the Year?

I think we've seen some very good performances from Pompey players this season with the consistency of them, unlike the Blues' form at times, unwavering.

Doncaster, Plymouth & Portsmouth could be involved in a three-way battle to be crowned champions? Leyton Orient are down with Hartlepool favourites to join them.

That outside chance of Pompey winning the championship is still ON after a win over Cambridge and defeats for Doncaster and Plymouth's draw.
