Kitson sees bright future for Nugent partnership

01 December 2010 02:00
Portsmouth striker Dave Kitson believes his partnership with David Nugent can be as good as the attack that fired Reading to the Championship title in 2005/2006. Kitson and partner Kevin Doyle each netted 18 goals in a prolific season, and Kitson believes he and Nugent are starting to develop a similar partnership. He told The Portsmouth News: "Nuge is very similar to Kevin Doyle from my Reading days. He is a willing worker, will run the channels and he's surprisingly good in the air. He's also strong - you can't knock him off the ball - and he's deceptively quick. "I knew David Nugent from what I'd seen on TV before I joined and I've seen myself that he's a very, very good player who is capable of scoring plenty of goals. He is not one to shy away from the hard work - he never has. That's the way he plays, it's a natural thing to him. "But he has moved for big money, has played in the Premier League and he's a decent, decent player - as are the rest of the team. "We've got the players around us and if we get those quality players in the right positions, it's only a matter of time before we see a decent striking partnership scoring plenty of goals."
