Perrin points to need for points
Portsmouth manager Alain Perrin
Portsmouth manager Alain Perrin said West Brom's need for points was the difference between the two teams after the Baggies' 2-0 win.

"The relegation situation was not our problem, our aim was to try and take some points to improve our position in the table," said Perrin.

"But I think the desire of West Brom was perhaps more.

"We showed we were professional in the way we went out to try and get points and there is a good spirit here."

Perrin added that the decision not to include striker Yakubu in the squad was due to his probable sale during the summer.

"We have some proposals so I think it was better for him not to play to avoid an injury. It was better for him and the club to stay at home," added the Pompey boss.
