Portsmouth to Win
Gillingham are just a point clear of the drop zone with two games left to play, though their dire need of a result might count for nothing against a formidable Portsmouth outfit. Pompey have won six and drawn two of their last eight home assignments and keen to sign off in style in their last fixture at Fratton Park of the campaign, the hosts are expected to prevail again.
Over 1.5 Portsmouth Team Goals
Portsmouth have been playing with plenty of attacking verve at Fratton Park this year and Danny Cowley’s charges have notched three or more goals in an impressive six of their last seven league tests on home soil. Pompey have enough firepower in their ranks to find more joy in the final third against Gillingham and a stake on the hosts in the over 1.5 team goals market could prove a profitable move.
George Hirst to Score Anytime
Portsmouth star George Hirst found the net in each of his last two runouts at Fratton Park and the 23-year-old always seems to excel in home games. Indeed, 70% of his ten League One goals this term have been registered on the south coast for Pompey and Hirst could add to his tally for the campaign against Gillingham on Saturday.
Portsmouth vs Gillingham Match Preview and Team News
Kieron Freeman, Jayden Reid and Reeco Hackett are out injured for Portsmouth this week while Joe Morrell remains a doubt in midfield. Pompey have little to play for in the final weeks of the League One season, though that doesn’t seem to have affected their performances. Portsmouth have lost only two of their last 15 league fixtures.
Danny Lloyd, Dan Adshead and Alex MacDonald are all in the treatment room for Gillingham at present, while Harvey Lintott and Mustapha Carayol are rated as doubtful. Attacker Charlie Kelman was sent off late on in the Gills’ 0-0 draw against Fleetwood on Monday and the American will miss this weekend’s game through suspension.
