There's nothing I can say to make Pompey fans feel better

Many Pompey fans may think Pompey's season has already faded away - but midfielder Joe Morrell says they can stop it from doing so with hard work and a turnaround in results.
Monday's 1-0 loss to Charlton at Fratton Park made it two points from five league games in January - woefully short of the sort of total needed to keep their play-off push.
A visit to Oxford this weekend looks ominous on present form but Morrell insists there's plenty to play for - while admitting Pompey's present form is simply not good enough.
He told the club website after the defeat to Charlton: 'You could probably use my interview from the MK Dons game and it would be a similar story, unfortunately. It’s completely unacceptable that we haven’t won in five games now and we have to look at ourselves.
'The fact that it is repetitive and we’ve had those moments like this before is what makes it so frustrating. We have to turn it around quickly because otherwise this season is going to fade away and we’ll have nothing to play for.
'There’s nothing I can say that’s going to make the supporters feel better. They’re fantastic and we can’t give them anything to cheer at the moment. When you’re not winning, it’s always a concern and you’ll look for things that are a problem. We’ve got enough quality to score goals and get results.
'We’ve done well in parts, but the better teams will put together those 90-minute performances week after week. It’s about piecing it all together and finding the best version of us because we’re not doing that at the moment.'
