Roberts, a Grenada international, told the Birmingham Post: "To go from training with the reserves and youth team at West Brom to playing in the Portsmouth first team away at Arsenal is some difference.

"I got the final 25 minutes as a substitute and I loved it. I am buzzing at the moment and haven't felt this good about football for a long time."

When asked about his relationship with in-demand manager Harry Redknapp, the striker replied:

"Harry is fantastic. He makes training so enjoyable and you can feel a buzz around the place. It is everywhere you go. I am bouncing at the moment. You are encouraged to express yourself and that makes playing for Portsmouth such a pleasure."
