Given Shay Given`s recent groin injury it seems a bit illogical for Sam to come out with this one but we`ll let him run with it as it`s derby week. Apparently Steve Harper is now our number one, facing the ferocious competition of Fraser Forster for the jersey. Speaking about the Pompey game he said:

‘I bet David James had more saves to make in the first half than Stevie Harper. And you can’t blame him for any of the goals. Even though we made a bad mistake for the second goal, it was a terrific finish from Benjani. It shows you what form he’s in. Steve will be in goal for however many games he performs well in. Shay will be out for a couple of weeks or so, then hopefully he stays as fit as he can.’
