Top 4: You`re Having a Laugh

Not that this is really going to be a shock to Pompey fans but Andrew Cole doesn`t think Pompey will be top four this season. Talk about being pessimistic!

'Everyone's very happy and it's about maintaining it between now and the end of the season.

'We've got to try to pick up as many points as possible. Yeah, we're in a lofty position now and hand on heart I don't think we're expecting to be in the top four come May.

'But the top half of the table, in the top 10 - I think everyone will be absolutely delighted with that.'
