Free-scoring Defoe staying grounded at Portsmouth

After six goals in six games for Portsmouth, Jermain Defoe is keeping his feet on the ground.

After scoring in Pompey's victory over Aston Villa, Defoe said: "At the moment all I want to do is keep this run going because I've always believed in myself and always said I would score goals if I got a decent run of games.

"I think my strength is my movement. I always try to move defenders around and I was really pleased with how I did it against a good side like Villa.

"But it is much easier when you have good players around you and Johnno (Glen Johnson) and Sulley (Muntari) both found me with great passes.

"Okay, we got a bit lucky with the second goal but all things are possible for strikers when you get great service."
