Harry demands improvement
04 May 2008 - 13:57:12
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp was disappointed with his side's lack-lustre display in Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.
The three points ended any lingering relegation fears for Boro, but Redknapp has promised a better display from his Pompey side in the final game of the season against Fulham.
He said: "I wouldn't disrespect the other managers who are in a relegation battle by picking a very, very, very weak team. I wouldn't do that.
"I wouldn't want somebody to do it to me, so I wouldn't do it to them. It's happened in the past, but I think it's disrespectful.
"We started the game nice and brightly, kept the ball, passed it great and created two or three fantastic opportunities and then lost our way.
"We're better than that. We've been a fantastic away team so I was disappointed today.
"One or two might have one eye on the FA Cup Final, but if they've one eye on the cup they might not get two feet on the pitch because that's the way it is."
