Pompey appear to have found their feet following a slow opening to the League One season.
They head into Saturday’s Fratton clash with Charlton on a run of six victories from the past seven matches.
Ryan Williams believes that everyone in the side has pulled together to help the Blues climb the standings.
And the winger has pointed to the side’s strong work ethic as a reason for why their quality is now starting to show.
He said: “It’s awesome to see John and Marcus scoring – we’ve got two strikers who are doing really well at the moment.
“That takes the pressure of the rest of us in the middle of the park and everyone’s doing their bit out there.
“The forwards are scoring goals for fun, the midfielders are supplying them and the defenders are keeping clean sheets.
"It’s taken us a few games to snap into it at the start of the season, but now we’re getting into the faces of other teams."
“Everyone’s together and we’ve all got a bit of fire in our belly. We’re also working hard and if we do that with our squad, then the rest should take care of itself.
“It’s taken us a few games to snap into it at the start of the season, but now we’re getting into the faces of other teams.
“After the wins at Gillingham and Sunderland, we wanted to sort our home form out – and did that on Tuesday against Northampton.”
Pompey now take on a Charlton side who head to the south coast on the back of four successive victories.
Williams said: “It’s a big test for us and I definitely think that they’ll be up right there come the end of the season.
“But if we produce the same work ethic and take our chances, then we can definitely get the result we want.
