Gary Roberts: Portsmouth bigger than Bournemouth

Portsmouth striker Gary Roberts says they're a bigger club than FA Cup opponents Bournemouth.

Despite the vast gap between the two south coast outfits, Roberts believes Pompey's rich history trumps their rival's jump into the big time.

He said, “We are the bigger club, we have a bigger fan base and we have bigger history.

“But it's all about tomorrow and Bournemouth are a wealthy club and have good players. Younger kids now must think 'how did Pompey win the FA Cup eight years ago?'

“That is the history of the club, that's what makes this club so special.

“Days like Saturday against Premier League sides, even if it is Bournemouth, are a good sight for the fans. The fans deserve it for what they've been through."
