Portsmouth forward Ronan Curtis has hit-back at any fears of fatigue stating he feels “as fresh as a daisy” ahead of South Coast side’s crucial run-in.
The 23-year-old has been a mainstay in the Portsmouth side for the majority of the season and has started the last 15 league games for the club.
Curtis has now played 81 times for his club over the last two seasons, and with Portsmouth sitting in sixth place in League One, Kenny Jackett will want to ensure that all of his players are fit enough to take part in the final months of the campaign.
Curtis has insisted he is in a fresh state to keep going until the end of the season and that he is happy to be playing week-in, week-out.
Speaking to the Portsmouth News, Curtis said: “I feel as fresh as a daisy so hopefully I can keep going and maintain that until the end of the season.
“I played in almost every game last season apart from when I had my finger injury.
“I’ve come back stronger and fought for my place. Now it’s good to be playing week-in, week-out, but I’m taking it in my stride.”
