Redknapp urges Portsmouth fans to stay grounded

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has urged fans not to get carried away with their superb season so far.

He said: "The punters can't get carried away. What we are doing is brilliant. When I came to the club we were fourth from bottom in the old First Division.

"It is not like we are Villa, who are a massive club and have been since God knows when. We were struggling with 8,000 gates. It has been an incredible turnaround in the last four or five years.

"People have got to keep their feet on the ground. We are looking to get a new stadium; the training ground is not good enough. We are looking for another one - it is now under water.

"We were unable to train really on Thursday and Friday. It was like a mud-heap. But we've got good spirit, good players and quality."
