Portsmouth win

Portsmouth have lost back-to-back games at home, while the team’s confidence is also very fragile after the recent loss at the hands of Oxford. The offensive performances from Pompey have been quite good, but they continue to be let down at the back. Burton have picked up back-to-back wins over Portsmouth, but they have not been playing well of late.

Total goals over 2.5

Three out of the last five matches for Portsmouth have produced more than 2.5 goals, as the defensive performances from Pompey have not been great. The bad defensive errors made by the team on a regular basis is likely to provide Burton with more joy in away matches. Burton might end up picking up a goal or two and this will push the total goals in the game.

Both teams to score – yes

Portsmouth have only failed to score against Sheffield Wednesday in the last five home matches. Since the failure to score against MK Dons back in November, Burton have come up with goals in five consecutive away fixtures. They should capitalise on Portsmouth’s defensive problems.
