Gareth Evans believes Pompey are fully equipped to deal with their hectic December schedule.

The Blues have a total of eight games to negotiate this month, including Tuesday’s rearranged clash with Charlton.

That is the second Fratton contest in the space of a few days, with a mid-table Southend side first to visit on Saturday.

And with Pompey chasing an eighth successive victory in all competitions, Evans hopes they can continue their fine run of form.

He said: “We’re doing everything right at the moment and seem to have got into the habit of winning games.

“I think the formation that the gaffer’s got us playing in suits everyone and things are coming together nicely, so we want it to continue.

“It’s going to be a tough test with a lot of fixtures coming up, although it’s nothing that this squad can’t handle.

“There are some difficult games against Southend and Charlton in the next few days and we’ve prepared as well as we can.

“We’re bringing some really good form into Saturday’s match and now we’ll just have to see where it takes us.”

Evans – who was recently named the PFA League One Player of the Month for November – brought up 150 appearances for the Blues last month.

He said: “It was a proud achievement for me and a nice milestone to reach, but I’m sure there’s a fair few games left in me yet.

“When I came here on trial for a couple days, I didn’t really expect to still be here three-and-a-half years later!”
