Lua Lua: I`ve Got to Fight
Lua has admitted that he is facing a battle to be in Pompey`s starting line up. He came in for some criticism after the Tottenham game and has apologised for his performance.
He is hoping to get into the team for the match against West Ham but admits he wouldn`t be surprised if he was dropped.
'I wasn't happy with how I played against Spurs. It was disappointing.
'But it was my first real game and on reflection I'm not as fit as I could be. I'm lacking sharpness.
'I just wanted to play, but, on balance, it may have been better waiting.
'When I was injured I was trying to get over the ankle problem.
'I wasn't concentrating on my running and fitness so much.
'What I'm doing now the ankle is better is a lot of running and getting my sharpness back.
'I'd like a run in the team, but to do that I need my sharpness.
'I'd be happy with just some kind of run-out against West Ham.
'To be honest I'd understand it if I didn't start.
'But it's football and the manager is going to do what he thinks is right.'
'I have a game for DR Congo on Sunday and I need to play for my fitness. I need to play and they need me.
'I know I have to fight for my place at Pompey so I want to get back to the right level quickly.'
I think Harry will watch his match Sunday closely because he looked way off the pace at Tottenham. An international match (in this case) is ideal.
