Hughes: Pressure off Pompey

AFC Bournemouth and former Portsmouth midfielder Richard Hughes believes that the Pompey players will relish the game at Dean Court on Saturday.

Despite Pompey's lowly position of 23rd in League One following eight consecutive defeats and going without a victory in seventeen matches, Hughes believes that our south coast neighbours will be difficult opposition with lowered expectations.

The Goldsands Stadium is expected to be a sell out, with the Cherries sitting fourth in the League One table and just four points from top.

Hughes told the Daily Echo...

"These are the sort of games that worry me. People look at the table and, automatically, think we are going to win.

"There will be no complacency on our part because the manager will not allow it. We will have had a free week to implement a structure and a plan to deal with the game and it is a huge one.

"They will bring lots of supporters and create a good atmosphere. If you are a Pompey player, it is a fantastic game to play in because the expectation will be off them and that is not always the case when you play at Fratton Park."
