Danny Rose has told of his pride at being involved in a second League Two promotion in two years - and says he can now enjoy being at a big club in League One.
The midfielder was one of Pompey's most consistent performers either side of a short spell out of the side, and is already looking forward to running out for the Blues at the higher level next season.
Some have even suggested he is a contender to replace Michael Doyle as skipper.
Rose told The News: ‘In terms of contribution, I’m happy with the amount of games. You always want to play more and play every single game. Sometimes it’s not possible.
‘I’ve certainly enjoyed it since the Crawley game when I’ve come back into the team. ‘I feel that I’ve contributed to the turn in the team’s form. I’ve been a good part of that and played regular games at a time when we needed to perform and pick up results.’
Rose joined from Northampton last summer after the Cobblers were crowned League Two champions and he added: 'To sign for such a big club was the dream. That’s why I turned down Northampton to play for Portsmouth
‘My plan was to be in League One next season and now we’re there. No disrespect to Northampton who are a fantastic club, and I enjoyed my time there, but I’m now at a bigger club in League One. So the decision to come here is entirely justified.’
