Pompey boss: Millwall match bigger than Southampton derby

BOSS Michael Appleton says Portsmouth's match against Millwall this evening is even more important than the south coast derby with Southampton.

Pompey snatched a last-minute equaliser at St. Mary's on Saturday to breathe new life into the battle against relegation, which has been several hampered by a ten-point deduction for going into administration.

"We’re fully focused on Millwall," he told the club's official website. "We’ve had a great result at our biggest rivals, which felt like a win after scoring so late.

"But, with all due respect to Southampton, we’ve got what is probably an even bigger game on Tuesday. It’s a game we need to win – and hopefully the Fratton faithful will get behind us like the normally do to help us achieve that."
