Back to the start

Jamie O'Hara is back where it all started for him in a Spurs shirt on Sunday - and looking to make a similar impact.

The midfielder made his debut as a substitute in our Premier League clash at Portsmouth last December and played a huge part in the goal as we secured a 1-0 win.

Almost a year on and Jamie is an integral part of the squad, impressing in his first two starts of the season in central midfield against Wigan and Newcastle and capping those displays with a goal in Wednesday's Carling Cup win at St James Park.

He'll certainly have a smile on his face when he steps back out at Fratton Park.

"That was a great occasion for me last season," he beamed, recalling his debut. "I had a few family members in the crowd crying their eyes out. It was a fantastic day and it's been a great year. Hopefully we can get a result and start pushing up the table."

Jamie has certainly put down a marker via his displays in the last week. "I've said to the manager that I want to be in the team all the time and I'm going to work hard in training and do my best.

"I will always give 100 per cent for this club.

"I feel sharp, I feel fit and if I can keep my levels up, hopefully I'll stay in the team.

"I feel I can play in a defensive role, an attacking role and adapt to what the manager wants. That's my biggest improvement - being able to do what the team needs."

Jamie is taking nothing for granted at Fratton Park - despite Pompey losing their last two matches 6-0 and 4-0 respectively in the space of four days last week.

"It's always a tough game and they are a great side with great players," he added. "We will have to work hard as a team and it will be one of those games where we really have to get around the park, work hard and take our chances.

"If we do that, we're capable of coming away with a result."
