Patrick Agyemang: Targeting Hartlepool scalp

The 32-year-old made his Pompey debut at the weekend during the 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth - a result that extended the club's winless run to 19 games.

It is the club's worst run of results in their history and they will go bottom of the League One table if they lose to John Hughes' side at Victoria Park on Tuesday.

But Agyemang believes Pompey showed signs of ending their abysmal run against the promotion-chasing Cherries on Saturday and can cause Pools some problems.

He told the club's official website: "It's frustrating (to lose) as we working so hard to get something from the game and from the moment they scored, it was obviously going to be a lot tougher for us.

"We created more chances and looked the better team at the hour mark. Then they scored and I thought it would be a lot more difficult.

"We had to try to open up a bit more and commit players forward, but that meant we were susceptible to conceding more goals.

"But I felt it was a good performance and yet a disappointing result.

"But if we produce a similar display at Hartlepool then a good result certainly isn't beyond us."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
