Pearce has praised Harry for keeping Portsmouth up and signing Sol Campbell.
'Sol Campbell's move to Portsmouth could end up looking like the signing of the season,' said Pearce.
'We had them watched on Saturday and the report back was Sol did really well.
'He has everything you want in a defender; size, experience, know-how and presence.
'A player of his ability probably had a lot of offers but, credit to Portsmouth, they have put the money down to pay his wages and it could work out well for them.'
'Harry did a hell of a job keeping them in the Premiership last season,' said Pearce.
'I saw them lose at Aston Villa in March and thought they were in big, big trouble.
'But the one thing about Harry is that he is prepared to put his neck on the line.
'He took a huge gamble in bringing about 12 players in during the transfer window. But, by speculating like that, he eventually got his team playing and probably saved the club something like £40million.'
