Job done - Crouchy

Peter Crouch insisted three points was all that mattered against Portsmouth on Saturday.

In the end, our fifth-successive victory in the Barclays Premier League was achieved with the minimum of fuss, although the lads were indebted to Heurelho Gomes for his early save from Anthony Vanden Borre when the scoreline was still goalless.

'Crouchy' soon headed home the opening goal and the second 14 minutes later from Niko Kranjcar all-but secured the points.

As Harry Redknapp later admitted, the second half somewhat fizzled out, but the 2-0 win saw us maintain our hold on fourth place and stretched our current run to just two defeats in 22 matches in all competitions.

"It was all about doing the job," said Peter. "It was nice to get on the scoresheet and it could have been more as well, I hit the post and should really have scored at the end as well.

"It was good to get the win. Maybe we eased off a little in the second half and we should have pushed on and scored more goals, but the job was done in the first half.

"It's been a good week with us getting to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, a couple of teams dropping points and us picking up maximum points. It's a long road, we're not there yet, but we'll keep fighting all the way."
