Accrington vs Portsmouth Match Preview
Portsmouth travel to Accrington for their Matchday 21 clash on Saturday looking to build on their lengthy unbeaten streak and snatch important points at Wham Stadium in a chase to catch up with the League One top 6. They now sit just three points behind 6th placed Coventry and have a game in hand, which will have Kenny Jackett’s men just as motivated now.
Pompey have seen a six-match winning streak ended as Peterborough snatched a point in a thriller 2-2 draw at Fratton Park last week, as their defensive slip-ups proved costly at last. They’ve been scoring and conceding goals in all of the last four outings but still beat Rotherham (3-2), Altrincham (2-1 in FA Cup), and Northampton (2-1 in EFL Trophy) since late November.
Accrington have, on the other hand, beaten Bolton twice (7-1 in League One and 2-0 in EFL Trophy) in front of the home fans and held Tranmere to a 1-1 draw on the road along the way. They will now hope to build on the streak and escape the immediate danger zone, but should be in for much more of a challenge.
Stanley have been tougher to beat at this ground through most part of the campaign and we’ve seen them scoring goals quite regularly, which does promise a solid challenge. Still, we don’t see them shutting down in-form Portsmouth and we feel the visitors should have what it takes to outgun them at this point.
We will thus back Portsmouth to snatch all three points and go for an Away win at 11/10 with BetVictor, which does feel like great value seeing that the visitors enjoy a better moment and have more depth in quality right now.
However, they might need the attacking line to the rescue once again and we hope for another thrilling contest here. With that in mind, we are also going for a high-scoring game here and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 17/20 with bet365.
