David Nugent hopes for more chances at Portsmouth following Jermain Defoe's departure to Tottenham.

The 23-year-old - the England cap who was signed from Preston in a big-money deal during the summer of 2007 - has been used on the right in a 4-5-1 formation.

Nugent told the Portsmouth News: "I prefer being a striker. But at the moment the gaffer is playing me out wide right, and I am enjoying being back in the side.

"I am just doing a job for the team really.

"I hope I can get a few more games to get match fit and start producing some performances for the club."
