Adams confident his Portsmouth prepared to scrap for FA Cup win
Adams said: "People will think negatively. That's down to them. I can't control other people. We talk about winning the game and going through.
"As far I am concerned I have a good team who are scrapping away trying to get to the next round. This is one game. The Tottenham game has nothing to do with Bristol City. It's a different day.
"Wins are good for confidence, but we can bounce back. I'm not going there, though. I just want to get the boys up for getting through to the next round.
"I've got some good players and I'll hopefully get them into a shape which does the business against Bristol City. Don't panic."
