The former England international is out of contract in the summer, but is hopeful that his performance - and goal - in the victory over Manchester United will go a long way towards ensuring that he remains at Fratton Park for 2004/2005.

But first Stone is concentrating on keeping his side in the top flight. After their massive win over the Red Devils, Stone is confident Portsmouth can stay up, stating: "Now we can go to Leeds knowing if we get anything out of the game then that is a good result".
