Harry Redknapp has delighted Pompey fans today by promising to buy one or two defenders in the January transfer window. He has however praised Andy O`Brien`s effort when he has come into the side.
'We are short of numbers at the back even though defensively we have been very good this season.
'It is when you lose key players that you begin to struggle and I'll probably look to add one or two in the next transfer window, but Andy has always done a sound job for us and we need him at the moment.'
Pompey have been linked with Ryan Nelson and Sylvain Distin but Manchester City have told the press they are desperate to keep him.
Stuart Pearce has said;
'I want Sylvain to stay and have been saying so from day one. We will do everything in our power to convince him his future lies here.
'The more good days you have and the more good results you have the more it convinces a player they want to stay. He enjoys working in Manchester and working for this club.
'We have to make sure the results go in the right direction so he will want to be part of what are trying to achieve.'
