Winger interviewed in Notts County programme
With nine games of the season remaining, Pompey’s fate is very much up in the air.
Paul Cook’s side could still claim automatic promotion, secure a play-off place or miss out on the top seven completely.
Kal Naismith is pleased that the Blues are currently on course to be featuring in a higher division next term.
The winger does concede that they probably should be higher in the table, but is only focused on what lies ahead.
“We would definitely like to be in a better position at this stage,” says Naismith in the official matchday magazine for Friday’s clash with Notts County. “But we are where we are and can’t change what has already happened.
“Now it’s important that we focus our attention on what’s ahead, looking forward to the games that are remaining and trying to improve where we sit in the table.
“We’re definitely still in the hunt for promotion and of course that’s a positive thing, but we set our standards pretty high.
“There are big expectations at Pompey, especially at home when we’re playing in front of so many people – and we don’t like disappointing them.
“They’ve constantly turned out in large numbers and never let us down, so we can’t let them down.”
To read the full interview – where Naismith also discusses the start to his Pompey career – pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers around the ground on Saturday.
