Southampton boss Pardew confident of Portsmouth Cup shock

Southampton boss Alan Pardew is eyeing an FA Cup shock against rivals Portsmouth.

The sell-out fifth-round tie at St Mary's could be Pompey's last game if they fail to avert a winding-up order.

Saints boss Pardew said: "We are very much aware of the pain they're going through.

"All the staff here have gone through it recently. I wasn't at Southampton at that time but they suffered. I feel for Portsmouth, but there'll be no sympathy from us on Saturday.

"We'll try to beat them and get to the quarter-finals.

"We are then three games from a Wembley final in the FA Cup."
