Portsmouth boss Tony Adams says David Nugent must stay patient.

Nugent is playing second fiddle to first-choice strikers Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch and Adams explained: "David's fully fit and recovered from his hernia operation and raring to go.

"He's got a problem that the other two keep on scoring – but that's a lovely problem.

"They are both playing extremely well and scoring lots of goals so at the moment chances are going to be limited for him.

"But he's reacting well, training really hard, and I think he's through his injuries now."
