Evans has two dreams to realise in exciting Pompey spell

He was left out of the starting XI at Walsall and could well suffer the same fate when Pompey host Scunthorpe on Saturday. But Gareth Evans has spoken of how much he is enjoying life on the south coast,
The versatile player has been a key man this season, despite being one of the few left in the squad who were at Fratton during Paul Cook's reign. He has weighed in with 12 goals and a fair few assists and is anxious to get back into the startling line-up for the run-in - and for Wembley.
In an interview with The Football League Paper, Evans said: 'Every year has been really good and there’s always been a bit of drama. It’s a fantastic club to play for and you could say I’ve found a bit of a home in Portsmouth.
'This is my fourth year now and hopefully I’ll sign a new contract soon and make that even longer. Everyone knows how good the fans are and I love playing at Fratton Park.
'Portsmouth against Sunderland (in the Checkatrade final at Wembley) means it’s two big clubs, well backed by their fans, and it will be a good occasion. It will be a tough game as they are a very good side, but I feel we can win it.
'If we can win at Wembley and then take that into the league and get ourselves promoted, it would be perfect. I’ve already had one promotion here and to get another one would be unbelievable. The main thing this season is to get promoted.'
He added: 'I’m playing as an attacking midfielder in the No.10 position. I hadn’t played it until this season and it was a bit strange at first, but I feel I have adapted and that I’m getting in the right areas.
'I’m pleased with my personal form and that I’ve been able to contribute to the team. We have to concentrate on the league at the moment, but all the lads are really excited about playing at Wembley. If we can win and I could score a goal in the process that would be the icing on the cake.'
