Portsmouth striker Aruna Dindane is confident fans would accept FA Cup defeat to Southampton if they stayed in the Premiership this season.

Dindane will find out about the feeling between the two sides in Saturday's mouthwatering FA Cup fifth round clash.

He said: "I do not know what Pompey v Saints means as I've only been here a few months.

"I hope I can score against Southampton but the league is all that matters not. I believe it is possible for us to stay up."
