Portsmouth boss Grant: Premier League treated us unfairly

Portsmouth boss Avram Grant believes the Premier League has not treated them fairly in the relegation battle.

Although the transfer embargo that was placed on Pompey last month has now been lifted, it only extends to loan players.

It has handicapped the cash-strapped south-coast outfit - although, given their much-publicised financial woes, it is difficult to see how they would have found the money to make any purchases.

"The Premier League made a big mistake," he told BBC TV's Match of the Day. "They needed to give us an equal chance.

"We are trying to bring people in but the embargo was only lifted a few days ago and it was only for loan players.

"But, no matter what the reasons are, whether they are right or wrong, we will try to do our best."
