Hart delighted with impact of Portsmouth winger Smith

Portsmouth boss Paul Hart is delighted with the impact of former Watford winger Tommy Smith.

Smith has emerged as an impressive influence of late, producing eye-catching displays in Pompey's last two matches.

Hart told The News: "If anybody can tell me that Tommy doesn't look like a Premier League player at the moment, I'd have a big argument with them.

"I think his energy and tenacity have been absolutely fantastic and his performances have been excellent. Obviously, Tommy and Aruna (Dindane) need a goal to propel them into another phase.

"But Tommy has terrific energy, he creates a lot of chances and is doing extremely well. He must be a nightmare to play against.

"I never had any doubts.

"He was a terrific player seven or eight years ago when I first saw him and that hasn't changed. He's doing exactly what I brought him for."
