Temporary Portsmouth boss Hart gets backing of chief executive

Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has been impressed by the impact of caretaker boss Paul Hart, who was promoted from head of youth development to succeed Tony Adams. The management team of Hart and Brian Kidd has guided Portsmouth away from trouble in accumulating 13 points from 19 games, losing only twice.

"In many ways Paul and Brian are an amusing combination - Paul with his experience and (his effect) as a disciplinarian on occasions, and Brian with his fantastic coaching knowledge," said Storrie.

"Together they have created something special for the players.

"The reaction they have had from senior players like Sol Campbell, David James and Sylvain Distin, people who have been there and done it all, is plain to see.

"And the way they have turned things around here in such a short space of time is magnificent."
