Portsmouth manager Tony Adams insists he will not be walking away from Fratton Park in the wake of Saturday's defeat to Liverpool.

The Reds returned to the top of the Premier League as Fabio Aurelio, Dirk Kuyt and Fernando Torres ensured Rafa Benitez's side came from behind three times on the South Coast to record a 3-2 victory.

David Nugent and Hermann Hreidarsson had twice put Pompey in front, but Adams' side have now not won a league game since November.

Pompey moved to rubbish midweek speculation that Alan Curbishley was being lined up to replace Adams, and the former Arsenal and England captain believes he continues to enjoy the support of club officials.

He said: "At the moment everyone tells me they want me to do the job so I'll get on with it."


Adams was disappointed with individual errors for Liverpool's goals but was encouraged by his side's performance and the debut of Angelos Basinas.

"It's hard to take when you come out of that game with nothing. We made mistakes but on the positive side there were a lot of good performances," he added.

"Nugent worked his socks off and Basinas had a decent debut.

"We've got a third of the season to go and I was very encouraged by that performance.

"They thought they deserved something from the game and threw their hands up and said sorry for the mistakes. I have faith in those players that they won't do it again."
