Pompey boss: Youngster can prove critics wrong

Pompey have decided against appealing Dave Kitson's Brighton red card.

The Blues had until 1pm yesterday to lodge a bid to overturn the striker's dismissal for violent conduct.

Kitson had insisted he had pushed Adam El-Abd in the chest rather than the face.

However, ITV cameras missed the incident.

And Pompey have now decided not to overturn it.
