Sunderland vs Portsmouth Match Preview

A huge game up at the Stadium Of Light between these two promotion hopefuls. Had Sunderland managed to hold on and win their game on Monday, they would have been tied with Portsmouth and this game would have had even more significance as they both held automatic promotion in their own hands. That is no longer the case for Sunderland, who need to win all three games and hope that Barnsley slip up somewhere.

However, Sunderland do not come here in the best of form, and they have struggled to handle the pressure recently. They have won just one of their last four games, with a defeat and two draws in that time. Being a big club there is probably more expectation on Sunderland than any other team involved in this battle, but the truth is, Sunderland have simply not been good enough this month so far. That is something they would love to turn around on Saturday.

Portsmouth on the other hand have come to life at exactly the right time and taken control of their automatic promotion push. They have won their last seven games, and if they win their last three to make it ten, it doesn’t matter what anyone else does, Portsmouth are going up automatically. This is of course a massive task for them, but they are the form team of the division right now, just when they need it the most.

We like Sunderland and they are a very good team, but as we have seen in recent weeks they are struggling to get over the line. We don’t think they will lose this game, but equally, we don’t think they are capable of winning it. Neither team wants this game to end in a draw, but that is what we think will happen on Saturday, and we are backing the draw at 12/5 with William Hill.

We like both teams going forward, and expect both to score. That points us towards a correct score prediction for this game of 1-1, which is available at 11/2 with Bet365.
