Tony Adams' future as Portsmouth manager is once again under scrutiny following reports he is set to leave Fratton Park on Monday.

The former Arsenal and England defender has only been in charge on the south coast since October 25 when he was named caretaker manager following the departure of Harry Redknapp.

Adams was then confirmed as Pompey boss on October 28. However, a run of just two wins in 16 league games has seen the club slide down the table and they now lie just one point above the relegation zone. They were also knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-0 home defeat to Coca-Cola Championship Swansea.

Pompey lost 3-2 to Liverpool last time out on Saturday courtesy of an injury-time goal by Fernando Torres after twice taking the lead.

Just last week executive chairman Peter Storrie quashed speculation the 42-year-old was on the brink of losing his job and called for the club and fans to pull together.

However, it appears time may now have run out for Adams with reports suggesting he will leave the club this morning.
