Paul Hart, the Portsmouth manager, says he does not fear for his job, despite his side's woeful start to their Premier League campaign. The club, owned by the UAE-based Sulaiman al Fahim have have lost all of their opening six league matches and are bottom of the table ahead of their game with Everton today. But when asked if he felt under pressure, the former Nottingham Forest manager said: "From what? Pressure to get the results - I want to get a result. That's what I'm about. "What have I got to fear? I know what I do day in, day out and I have no fears about that. It's not me that's going to make decisions like that and it's not something I think about every waking hour. "I'm not an owner. I'm a manager, a coach and that's what my job is." Portsmouth v Everton, 3.45pm, Showsports 2
