Grant urges Portsmouth fans to cut Wilson some slack

Portsmouth boss Avram Grant has urged fans to cut Marc Wilson some slack.

Wilson was at fault for both of Stoke City's goals in their weekend defeat.

But Grant argues: "Marc is a young guy, he's played a lot of games.

"We didn't plan for him to play so much football in his first year, but we lost Younes Kaboul and Tal Ben-Haim and we don't have any other defenders.

"He's played many games and done well, but sometimes makes mistakes."
