Winger interviewed in Luton programme

Defeat at Leyton Orient on Boxing Day was a setback in Pompey’s ambitions of achieving automatic promotion.

But Gareth Evans is hopeful that the Blues will still be celebrating an end to fourth tier football come May.

They currently sit fourth in the League Two table with just one more game to play in 2015.

And Evans does not believe that the Fratton faithful should have to settle for anything less than success.

“There was a large contingent of players who arrived at Pompey last summer and we all came for one reason – to win promotion,” he says in the award-winning matchday magazine for Monday’s clash with Luton. “We’re not here for anything else.

“It helps that there is a good number of lads who have already got the experience of going up from League Two because they know what it takes to enjoy success at this level.

“That will really start to come into play when we reach March or April and you’ve got important games where three points are vital.”

To read the full interview – where Evans also talks about his personal form and settling on the south coast – pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers on Monday.

Also in issue 16, Brian Murphy dishes the dirt on his team-mates and Adam Webster selects his dream team.
