The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

KAL Nai­smith has gone from out of favour to derby match-win­ner in a blink of the eye, yet the Portsmouth winger takes noth­ing for granted.

He was used al­most ex­clu­sively from the bench in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber but has been a reg­u­lar starter for the past month and notched the only goal against Ply­mouth in the Dock­yard Derby last week­end.

“It’s been bril­liant to be starting,” said Nai­smith, 25, whose side are now clos­ing in on the top six.

“I’m lov­ing it, but every­thing can change pretty quickly in football. I knew that six weeks ago and I still know it now.”
