Stoke boss Pulis: FA should help Portsmouth

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis says the FA should take responsibility over Portsmouth's plight.

With the weekend home defeat to Stoke leaving Pompey adrift at the bottom of the table, taking the nine-point deduction for going into administration now appears the most likely strategy.

Pulis, a former Portsmouth boss, said: "I think the FA have a responsibility to themselves, as well as this football club, to make sure it keeps going.

"It's such a famous football club - a great football club. I was very, very privileged and lucky to have managed it for nine months and I really enjoyed it here. Is very important they keep it going because 250,000 people live around this area and people support this club from thousands of miles away.

"The most important thing before they do that is to keep the place going until the end of the season."
