There are only seven teams in the top four tiers of English football that are still unbeaten in the league.
Pompey are the sole representatives in their division – and Tom Naylor is looking for the run to continue.
Dropping just four points from eight fixtures, the Blues sit top of the pile ahead of this weekend’s visit of Wycombe.
And although that has seen their confidence soar, Naylor knows it is far too early to be getting carried away.
“We’re unbeaten in the league and want to keep it that way for as long as possible,” he says in the official matchday magazine for Saturday’s contest. “We had a good result at Peterborough last Saturday to go top of the table and now we’re looking for something similar against Wycombe.
“It’s worth remembering that we’re only eight games in, though, and there’s still an awful long way to go. If you’re still up there around March and April, then you start to get excited.
"Everyone knows what their job is and that helps, while we’ve had a settled team recently, which is a bonus
“All the other teams are chasing us at the moment, but we’re just concentrating on continuing to pick up points. We need to keep doing what we’ve been doing and working hard.
“Everyone knows what their job is and that helps, while we’ve had a settled team recently, which is a bonus. We’re all in it together and fighting for the same outcome.”
To read the full interview, where Naylor also discusses why he headed south in the summer, pick up a copy of the matchday magazine from programme sellers around the ground.
Also in issue seven, Ben Close reveals his firsts and lasts, while Oli Hawkins has his general knowledge put to the test.
