Benjani relishes success

Portsmouth striker Benjani Mwaruwari has admitted to being surprised by his outstanding goalscoring form so far this season. The 29-year-old Zimbabwe international has netted eight goals in the league already this term, having previously struggled to make his mark at Fratton Park. He told the club's official website: "I wasn't expecting to be the Premier League's top scorer. My target was 15 in all competitions, so I've still got seven to go. "If I get any more it will be a big, big bonus for me. You just have to keep going with the right attitude." Meanwhile, Pompey defender Martin Cranie has played down talk of him making his loan switch to QPR into a permanent deal, after impressing at Loftus Road. He told The News: "I don't know anything about me joining permanently, I wouldn't be interested. "I definitely see my future at Portsmouth, this is just an experience for me. I just want to go out and get games and show everyone what I can do. "This is just a loan thing for me, nothing else, and when the three months are up I will return to Portsmouth."
