Fleetwood vs Portsmouth Match Preview

Fleetwood host Portsmouth for their Matchday 35 derby clash on Saturday afternoon in great shape and on the back of a four-match winning streak, looking to jump the rivals to a top 6 spot in League One after picking it up with wins over Doncaster (2-1), Wimbledon (1-2), Wycombe (0-1), and Peterborough (2-1).

Trawlermen have seen some very narrow clashes along the way and have proven themselves a very tough nut to crack at Highbury, which promises a very strong challenge once again. Joey Barton’s men have been denied some important points here and impressing now will be a crucial task.

Indeed, Portsmouth will be direct rivals for Promotion and while they have seen Coventry (a 1-0 loss at St Andrew’s) interrupt a lengthy winning streak last week, Kenny Jackett’s men already bounced back. They beat Shrewsbury (2-0) in League One as well as Exeter (3-2) in a five-goal EFL Trophy thriller over the past seven days and will surely be in a great mood.

Pompey have been solid defensively and will want to base success here on such a performance too. Still, causing an upset at in-form Fleetwood will be no easy task and we don’t see them turning it their way – despite seeing them as favourites to secure promotion Play-offs between the two.

We will thus stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils at Highbury and we’ll go for a Draw at 12/5 with bet365, which feels like more than a lively longshot with high stakes and what shapes to be a tough deadlock to break.

The visitors conceded just two goals in five away games and we are now hoping for a tight back line once again. With that in mind, we are also hoping for few goals on the day and we’ll go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with BetVictor!
