Therry Racon has demanded Pompey cash in on the momentum created by back-to-back wins.

The French midfielder insists his team can’t afford to rest on their laurels after their 2-0 success over Bury at Fratton Park.

Pompey face two away games this week as they go to Leyton Orient tomorrow and Doncaster on Saturday.

The Blues are now eight points from safety with nine games to go.

Racon remained coy on the chances of the most improbable of survival runs.

But the 28-year-old wants to see the impetus Pompey now have continue as they go to Brisbane Road.

He said: ‘We just have to keep winning games.

‘We are eight points from safety but we have to win as many as we can now.

‘Now we have to show respect to the fans because they always follow us.

‘So we can’t give up and have to keep going.

‘We have to stay on a good run until the end of the season.

‘We have to keep it going as we go to Leyton Orient.’

Racon made his seventh Pompey appearance against Bury and now feels he is finding form.

He believes his understanding with Johnny Ertl in midfield is beginning to mature.

Racon said: ‘Me and Johnny are getting to know each other and are getting better and better.

‘It’s improving but there is still better to come from us.

‘I’m starting a lot of games and feel good.

‘I haven’t played for a while, so it takes time to get to the right level.

‘But I feel like I’m getting there.

‘And I feel I’m getting close to the right levels of fitness.’
