Pompey boss aware of Sky Blue threat

Portsmouth may be fighting for their Premier League survival both on and off the pitch after a turbulent season but manager Avram Grant has insisted they will give the FA Cup their full respect this season, ahead of Saturday's 3rd Round clash with Coventry City.

"I like the FA Cup," he told the official Pompey club website

"In one game anything can happen.'

The Sky Blues will welcome back Sammy Clingan and James McPake to their starting line-up at Fratton Park and Grant knows that Chris Coleman's side have improved in recent weeks.

"Our scouts have looked at Coventry and said that they`re a difficult team to play against,' he said.

"All the teams from the Championship give 100 per cent, but we want to succeed."

1-0 or more likely 2-1 to Pompey, but should be close.
