James says Portsmouth can be happy with point

Portsmouth goalkeeper David James believes they can be happy with their point gained at Hull City.

James felt the visitors - who were watched by newly-installed director of football Avram Grant - could return south the happier of the two teams.

"We had chances," said the England international. "I thought we defended well, and conditions were testing. It was very wet.

"It was not necessarily the best advert for Premier League football. But we got a point - and considering they are one of our rivals down the bottom, it was important not to lose.

"We have got to be happy with that, despite the fact we didn't win. We haven't played with the same flair we have in most of the last five games but we still created opportunities.

"There comes a point when we are going to have to put them away. But fortunately it wasn't costly, in that we didn't lose."
