Hart: I would never have walked out on Portsmouth

Portsmouth manager Paul Hart claims that he never considered quitting the club, despite failing to collect a single point from their opening seven matches.

• Mokoena: We're too good to go down

Before the recent turnaround in form, Hart says he would not have walked away from Fratton Park and believes few other managers would have taken on the challenge anyway.

"I have never walked away from a job,'' he said. ''I've been sacked, but I've never walked away. To be fair, who would want to take this job on? What people do is they wait until you get into a good position and then all of a sudden they say, 'Oh, that's a good job.'"

Having taken four points from their last two games, another victory for Pompey would take them above Blackburn on goal difference this weekend, while Wolves could drop into the bottom three as they face a tough game at home to Arsenal.

But Hart is not concerned about whether the Gunners can do his side a favour. He said: "I'm not looking at who's playing, but I am looking at us. I know that if we get three points, we move. That's important psychologically for everybody going into the international break. It would compound their belief in their performances and what they have done over the last couple of months.

"They've played extremely well without a lot of reward for it. Psychologically, I think moving off the bottom this week would be massive for us."

Ivory Coast international Aruna Dindane has silenced his critics in recent games with a stunning hat-trick against Wigan and Hart is sure that he will make a difference again.

He said: "I think that's what he has been missing. He's very hard on himself and he felt that he should have scored before then. Now he has to maintain that form, but apart from scoring goals, his performances have been excellent. He has managed his frustrations and got on with his job. It's like all centre-forwards, they want to score."
