Portsmouth defender Ben Davies hopes his side can maintain momentum towards their League Two play-off campaign.

Pompey's 2-1 victory against Wycombe on Saturday all but guaranteed them a place in the division's top seven.

Automatic promotion is out of reach for Paul Cook's side barring an unlikely series of results.

"It's nice to have reached the play-offs, but we wanted automatic promotion at the start of this season," Davies told BBC Radio Solent.

Pompey bounced back from successive defeats with the win against Wycombe at Fratton Park.

But their hopes of a late run to the automatic promotion places were dented by wins for Oxford, Accrington and Bristol Rovers.

"Now, it's all about maintaining the momentum towards the play-offs," Davies added.

"You can look at it two ways. You can either limp into those games and not really get yourself going for our remaining fixtures, we've got to keep it at full throttle.

"Those play-off games aren't that far away, so we've just got to keep plodding on and make sure whoever we get, we're ready and raring to go."
