Huseklepp Has Good Reasons To Help Out Birmingham

Huseklepp Has Good Reasons To Help Out Birmingham

Portsmouth striker Erik Huseklepp says that he wants to help out his parent club while on loan with Birmingham City.

The Norweigian striker had to come to St Andrews although he admits it was a hard move to make, but while he is here at Blues he intends to help out Pompey by helping Birmingham beat teams who are, like Portsmouth struggling at the bottom of the table.

Speaking to the Portsmouth News he said: 'The move was a big surprise for me. It's done now, though. I have a new challenge and I have to focus on that but I can still help Portsmouth against teams at the bottom.

'I hope and think the club are good enough to survive. The team just need to get the players back from injury. I hope so much we stay up.'

Huseklepp would also love to see Portsmouth`s fierce rivals Southampton knocked out of an automatic promotion place by City.

'And I really hope to push Southampton out of second place. Stopping Southampton would be the best thing possible as a Portsmouth man. There's a gap but we have a game in hand. I'm focused on doing as well as I can and achieving that.'
