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...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
