IT’S ALL CHANGE AS KAL PEAKS AT POMPEY
PORTSMOUTH forward Kal Naismith reckons he’s in the best form of his career – and hopes it can help Pompey secure promotion.
Naismith, 25, produced a goal and an assist in a manof-the-match performance at Hartlepool last week, his third goal in as many games.
The Scottish forward was on the transfer list last summer but things have turned around and he has become a key component of third-placed Pompey’s promotion push.
The former Rangers man is enjoying life at Fratton Park and is confident he can continue his good form on the South Coast.
“It’s the best form of my career, I’d say so – and I’ve been in good form before,’ said Naismith.
“I got 11 goals at Accrington, but we were battling at the opposite end of the table.
“To be at a club like Portsmouth, doing it an important time of the season in a promotion battle, is good.
“So far in my career, it’s the best run I’ve had. Hopefully, I can make it better and better.”
Naismith’s first season at the club included a loan spell at Hartlepool, but his turnaround in form has even led to talk of a call-up to the Scotland squad.
Naismith, though, is fully focused on claiming a place in the top three and finishing off the job Pompey have started.
“We haven’t done anything yet, but we’re in a good position and we’re looking forward to what comes next. We’re looking forward to the next game,” he said.
“We have to look to finish in the best position we possibly can. If we could catch Plymouth (in second), then happy days. They are a very good side.
“We just have to keep concentrating game by game now.
“It’s looking at each match. We know we’ve got a job to do.”
POSITIVE: Kal Naismith
