Winger interviews in Saturday's programme
Ricky Holmes has targeted a consistent run of form to push Pompey up the League Two table.
The Blues have not won back-to-back matches since August and have slipped to 14th place.
But they are still only three points adrift of the play-off spots and have been beaten just once at home.
So Holmes knows that a promotion push is still very much in Pompey’s sights with more than half the campaign remaining.
“York were down with us last season, but put a run together and ended up in the play-offs,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s clash with Carlisle. “All it takes is a run of results and you can shoot up this division.
“We thought Bury were pretty decent after they beat us, but then they went to Shrewsbury and were hammered 5-0.
“It just shows you that anything can happen and it’s consistency that will get you promoted.
“It’s all well and good saying that, though – now we have to produce on the pitch.”
