Fergie Not Inspired By Blues

Fergie Not Inspired By Blues

Sir Alex Ferguson laughed off claims that his side had been inspired to victory at Fratton Park after Chelsea's humiliation at Middlesbrough.

Ferguson: 'We had a job to do. Our record here in the last two years has been terrible - we haven't scored goal - so the important thing was to win the game.

'What we want to do is win matches and if that takes us to a higher position then we can keep it going and it will give us a chance.

'In a league of this nature, with the competitiveness of it, you are going to drop points and you have to recover from them. We have to hope Chelsea have a bad spell.

'We had very good first half. We got careless in the second half but, in fairness to Portsmouth, they never gave in.

'It was an incredible [first] goal from Ronaldo. The boy is capable of that. He scored two goals last week (against Fulham) and two this week - that is terrific going.

'He is capable of 15-20 goals a season.'
