Adams pleased with Portsmouth striker Nugent
Adams said: "David came on and worked very hard for the team, created himself a couple of chances and he was very unfortunate. As well as the one that hit the post, I think the second one was going in until Micah Richards got in the way of it.
"But if David keeps doing that, he will carve himself out a career here.
"Benjani was very similar and it takes time for players to settle."
