CHRISTIAN BURGESS targeted maintaining Pompey’s unbeaten run as they go to Oxford United.

But the defender admitted Paul Cook’s expansive style of play will make it a challenge to keep the record.

The run gives us confidence and I’d like it to keep going.

Burgess said: ‘The run gives us confidence and I’d like it to keep going. It’s nice, but it’s not crucial.

‘The way the gaffer likes to play football is to go out and win games. When you go out to beat teams you will eventually lose doing that, but obviously it’s a nice feeling to be unbeaten.’

Burgess is expecting an attractive game of football at the Kassam Stadium.

He said: ‘It’s a tough test against a team who like to get the ball down and play.

‘They have good strikers and have been tipped to do well - but we are looking forward to the challenge.’
