Nugent is ready to be 'unleashed'

Nugent is ready to be 'unleashed'

After scoring the winning goal against Ipswich last weekend Dave Nugent is straining at the leash to be given a chance against Sunderland this weekend, to try and prove that he is worthy of his place in the premier league.

Harry Redknapp has been unconvinced by him for the most part this season and The News have said that he has had concerns about his 'performance in training'.

However Nugent has been putting in extra shifts to improve his fitness and prove that he is up for the fight and he is hoping that this, and his goal against Ipswich will help him get a start that he deserves against Sunderland on Sunday.

I have been very impressed with him recently, and against Ipswich he was almost unplayable for around 20 minutes or so after he came on and made a huge difference. Yep, David James' saves ensured we won, but his goal ultimately won us the tie.

It all depends on what formation that Redknapp plays - if he is still here? - if he goes for his usual 4-5-1, unless he moves Benjani out to the right I am not sure that he will be given the start that he deserves to be honest, as much as I - and the cast majority of you - would like to see...

I think this is Nuge's time - he going to shut everybody up and once he starts hitting the back of the net there'll be no stopping him.

Yea I have been very happy with his performances over the last couple of premiership games where he came on as a sub, he seems to be ready and psyched to get his chance and do well. I have no doubt he will perform

I think we will play Benjy on the right which is why he didn't play at Portman Road. Go get 'em David!

I agree with Eastneydave we'll still have five across the middle with Benji on the right and nuge up front.. If given the chance against these 'championship' sides he could well get off the mark in the premiership... let's hope so I could do with cheering up at the mo !

Cookie pleased with Bournemouth showing

You cannot always gage too much from pre-season can you. Although the game with Bournemouth tends to again show Pompey have goals in us this season...but we'll concede them too?
