Tony Adams has likened new Portsmouth hero Jermain Defoe to his old Arsenal team-mate Ian Wright - and believes the Tottenham reject has the talent to spearhead the side´s attack attack on his own.

Defoe has scored eight goals in eight league games since his January transfer with boss Harry Redknapp providing him with a partner up front even though it has meant shelving the the 4-5-1 formation which has proved so successful.

But Adams insists: "I don´t see why Jermain could not play that position up there on his own. He is certainly good enough."
