Hart backed to get full-time job

Portsmouth executive chairman Peter Storrie says Paul Hart is the front-runner to be named as permanent manager after helping Pompey avoid relegation.

Hart has been in temporary charge, with Brian Kidd as his assistant, since the sacking of Tony Adams in February.

Storrie told BBC Radio Solent: "I've always said that they're in pole position for the job.

"We'll move forward after the game on Monday. It's important that we now finish the season in style."

Storrie will also address the future of a number of Pompey players, with 17 first-team squad members either out of contract or at the end of loan deals at the end of the season.
