Portsmouth win

Portsmouth have registered four wins in the recent five matches. Crucially, Danny Cowley’s men have been able to get a string of resilient performances during this period. Portsmouth have players like Aiden O’Brien who have been in excellent form over the last few weeks. Accrington are also unlikely to give up and they are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Portsmouth. However, Portsmouth’s home advantage coupled with the recent form should get them to a win.

Total goals over 2.5

A feature of Portsmouth and Accrington matches in recent weeks have been the goals. Portsmouth have scored an incredible 16 goals in the recent six matches, while Accrington have witnessed a combined tally of 17 goals in the last six games. A 2-2 draw took place in the reverse fixture back in October and one can expect a similar flurry of results this time around.

Both teams to score – yes

Apart from the clean sheet against Doncaster, Cowley’s men have been unable to set up shop even when they have been playing well. Accrington are fresh from scoring three goals during the weekend. Even if the visitors do not get a lot of goals away from home, this match should witness goals at both ends.
