'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cotterill eyes a 'fantastic boost'

Ahead of the Norwich game Steve Cotterill was waxing lyrical about Dave Nugent.

Following this game, and the win that he played a major part in, I would imagine that he will be pressing the case for him to have a contract extension even stronger...

Given his form, both goalscoring and overall, in recent weeks then it would be a 'fantastic boost' if he did stay.

Cotterill had said: 'it would be a fantastic boost for him to sign a new contract. He's not only a top player but a top lad and a big part of the dressing room.

'I don't think we were ever close to losing him. I think there was a lot more made of it then there was any real substance. I don't think so.

'I think talks could go on over the next month. David Lampitt is trying to tee up a conversation with his agent.

'It's not something I deal with. I deal with whether I want them or not - and I want him.

'There will be interest in him. He's a good, young player and an infectious character.

'I know where David's head is. He's happy at the moment. He's not looking to leave and that's a bonus for us.'

To be honest I would not go as far as saying he 'would not' leave in the New Year, although I do now think that he would be happy to stay.

This is not something that I would have, that often really, previously had thought.

When I say 'stay', I mean until the end of the season at least...

As for a new contract, my thoughts remain the same as ever.

Unless he takes a significant pay cut I cannot see how an extension can be signed as there is no way in hell he could be awarded a new contract on his current money, it just would not be possible!

This is an issue that will impact on the futures of a few players on the Pompey books - pay cuts 'should' make it possible for them to stay, unless this happens they will, if not in January then in the summer, be moving on...

    Nugget certainly turned it on on Saturday and set up both goals. Will he stay or is he hoping these displays will attract another club?

    I'd like to see him stay, he is suited to this level and putting in some decent performances. He has won over the fans with his persistence and work rate and showed on Saturday that he can win games.
