Adams: Portsmouth surprise factor now gone

Portsmouth No2 Tony Adams believes the team's surprise factor has now been lost.

Adams said: "Teams are giving us respect here at Fratton Park and I think the days are gone where we can catch teams by surprise. Manchester City were the third team on the trot who have come here and played with one man up front, and we need to find ways to play against that.

"We have to go to another level ourselves and try to break teams down."
