Pompey boss excited by the mountainous challenge of the final four games

Plenty of Pompey fans have given up on the team's hopes of making the play-offs - but boss Danny Cowell has not.
He believes they can still make the top six if they finish the season with a flourish - something they have not looked like doing in taking one point from 12 in their last four games.
Looking ahead to a weekend clash with Bristol Rovers, Cowley told the Pompey website: 'We were all desperately disappointed with the outcome of the match at Swindon on Tuesday. It’s bad enough when you let yourselves down, but even worse when it’s the supporters who feel so much for the club.
'We have to collectively burden that responsibility and when you wake up on the Wednesday, it’s about moving forward with enthusiasm. If you can work out the ‘whys’ then hopefully you can make sure that it doesn’t happen again. We feel that we’ve made some progress.
'The players have the best job in the world because they get to do something they love every single day – and get paid to do so. They’re an honest, hard-working group and to say otherwise is unfair, but of course you can criticise us for not managing aspects of the game.
'We’re continually trying to develop our competency in order to approach these final four fixtures of the season. There’s so much to play for and people might think we have a mountain to climb, but I’ve spent my whole life climbing them. I’m excited for the challenge.'
