Portsmouth fringe players meet Adams' contract challenge
"I asked the players to be more resilient. I asked for a fantastic defensive display and I got one," said Adams.
"We have been beating ourselves lately by shipping goals and I wanted us to be tough to beat again.
"A lot of the players who started here are fighting for new contracts and that's fantastic.
"If they can prove they are good club men and are willing to fight for the cause I'll give them new contracts."
