Portsmouth vs Sunderland Match Preview

Portsmouth have connected a seven-match winning streak since early January but they still sit a point behind the top 6 with a point gap and a game in hand to 5th placed Sunderland, as they host the Black Cats in an attempt to build on the streak and make the cut on Saturday afternoon.

Pompey have been conceding goals in front of the home fans but still beat Wimbledon (2-1), Scunthorpe (2-1 in EFL Trophy), and Barnsley (4-2 in FA Cup) along the way. They’ve been led by in-form John Marquis in the final third lately and Kenny Jackett will surely hope to build on such a goalscoring run, which promises his men in a good mood once again.

Sunderland will be no easy rivals to deal with and they travel to Fratton Park with a nine-match unbeaten streak behind them, turning four of the last five outings their way. They beat Tranmere (0-1) with a single goal from Charlie Wyke on Wednesday and showed off as a rock-solid defensive line time and time again.

Black Cats thus also kept their fourth clean sheet in a row and they will hope to build on the streak here. Still, the trip to Portsmouth could prove the toughest challenge yet and Phil Parkinson’s men will surely be given a run for the money as they look to keep hold of a top 6 spot.

We don’t see them making it happen, though, and we’ll now rather stick our necks out for Portsmouth to bag all three points at 5/4 with BetVictor. We’ve seen them furious here lately and we feel they can build on such performances despite a tough challenge.

Still, we expect a thriller on Saturday afternoon and we’ll back such a claim with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 5/4 with Paddy Power, hoping Portsmouth will outgun Sunderland in order to secure the points on the day.
