Harrogate vs Portsmouth Match Preview
Portsmouth travel to Harrogate for their FA Cup clash on Monday evening on the back of a convincing home win over Southend (4-1), where John Marquis, Ellis Harrison (x2), and Marcus Harness made it on the scoresheet as Kenny Jackett’s men extended a four-match unbeaten streak.
Pompey have been more confident in front of the home fans but we’ve seen them in good shape moving forward and this will give them ground to build on, despite dropping a two-goal advantage in a thriller 2-2 draw at Bristol Rovers on their last trip. They will now hope they can make the difference in depth of quality count and we should see an in-form outfit on the day.
Harrogate boast a fine streak of their own lately and we’ve seen them bag five wins in their last six outings, including an FA Cup win over Halifax (1-2) midway through October and only seeing Eastleigh (4-2) interrupt the streak along the way. They have struggled to keep it together at the back, though, and this could be worrying.
Town conceded six goals in three goals and while they beat Barnet (2-1) and Bradford Park Avenue, it’s obvious coping with Portsmouth will not be the same sort of a challenge. They will still look for an FA Cup miracle – if you can call it that – and we expect them to go all out for it.
We will still back Portsmouth to outgun the 5th tier rivals and make their way to the next round, where an Away win still looks like a solid approach, catching the eye of many heavy hitters already and backed at 8/13 with William Hill.
We hope to see Harrogate have their say too and with that in mind, we’re backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with bet365. We’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular, especially at this ground, and this has us hoping for another such occasion now.
