Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp insists David Nugent has a future on the south coast after his Carling Cup winner this week.

Redknapp publicly toyed with the idea of off-loading Nugent within weeks of bringing him to the south coast but could now add him to his plans if Benjani is ruled out.

Redknapp said: "David needs to work hard and take his chances when they come. We have got a bit of competition up there now. Kanu has been fantastic for us and I have got four up there for me now."
