Portsmouth vs Peterborough United Match Preview
Both teams need to win this match to boost their League One promotion hopes – albeit neither has their fate in their own hands in terms of their immediate targets.
Portsmouth still have a fair shot at automatic promotion. They are third in the table, four points behind leading duo Luton and Barnsley with this game in hand, and will know that only two victories in their remaining games will give them a chance of going up directly.
Both of Pompey’s matches are at home and if they beat Peterborough, you can be sure their fans will spend much of Saturday’s fixture against Accrington desperately trying to keep in touch with what is happening to their promotion rivals.
For Peterborough, the aim is the last play-off place, but they essentially need two wins and for Doncaster to lose at home to Coventry to squeeze into sixth position.
The problem for Posh is that they suffered a poor 3-0 defeat away to relegation-haunted Walsall at the weekend which does not bode well for their trip to the south coast.
With Portsmouth having lost only once in the league since the start of February, and being winners of their last four home games, they are the sensible bet here to make sure they have plenty still to play for when the regular season concludes on Saturday.
