Cook Looking forward to Pompey game

Cook Looking forward to Pompey game

Just over 500 tickets been sold to the visiting supporters for the match at Fratton Park. Cook talking to the official website said: 'Portsmouth are a good side, they've got threats all over the pitch, they'll be backed by ferocious support but we've good players and we're looking forward to the game. We want it to be a great advert for the league. We want to be speaking Saturday night about a great game at Fratton Park.

'We've got our weekend fully prepared, fully planned out. The players are in no doubt of how big a game it is because it's the next one, it's not because it's Portsmouth.'

He goes on to talk about Portsmouth: 'They'll go back up the leagues quickly, whether it's this year or not remains to be seen but with the fan base they've got, the infrastructure they've got, they will move up the league.

Bradford City who were once in the Premiership, found themselves in the bottom league, but last season they managed to win promotion to League One through the play-offs, and there is no reason why they can't go up again.

Big clubs will always find a way back up the Leagues at the moment they just need to find stability. They didn't have to start the season minus 10 points, so they are on a level playing field, they are not worrying about were the wages are coming from for the players. They can now put everything into performing on the pitch and concentrate on winning games.
