Portsmouth or Draw

Portsmouth have dominated this fixture in recent years. They’ve lost just 1 of the last 7 matches against Barnsley (W3 D3). Pompey also enter the match in great form over the last 5 rounds (W4 D1). They’ve conceded just 1 goal in those 5 matches too. Due to all that our first Barnsley vs Portsmouth prediction is for the visitors to avoid defeat.

Bishop to Score Anytime

Our second Barnsley vs Portsmouth prediction backs Pompey’s top scorer (14 league goals) Bishop to get on the scoresheet. Bishop enters the match after scoring in the last 2 rounds. He also scored against Barnsley just 5 weeks ago in a 1-1 home draw. In general, Bishop elevates his displays against the top teams. He already scored 6 goals against top 6 opponents this season.

BTTS – No

With our final Barnsley vs Portsmouth prediction we suggest that not both teams will be able to score. Only 1 of Portmsouoth’s last 5 games had a BTTS finish. Also, only 2 of the last 6 H2H matches Barnsley hosted saw both teams scoring. In fact, only 5 of the last 14 H2H clashes altogether had BTTS outcomes.

Barnsley vs Portsmouth Lineups and Team News

Barnsley

Barnsley failed to create enough chances on their visit to Bristol Rovers last Saturday and as a result, they drew 0-0. Defensively things looked solid, but for the second time in just the last 3 rounds Barnsley’s forward actions looked ineffective.

The options for rotation remain limited with 6 long-term absentees still filling the rehabilitation room. Among them is the main goalkeeper Collins. In his absence, Isted is grabbing his chance well and his displays in recent rounds had been solid.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth offered yet another very solid defensive display on Saturday when edging Cambridge 1-0. Top scorer Bishop (14 goals) scored the only goal, this being the second round in a row in which Bishop gets on the scoresheet. With only 1 goal conceded in the last 5 rounds and just 2 points dropped Portsmouth are just about keeping their slim promotion chances still alive.

Pompey remain without 5 long-term absentees. Among them are the main left-back Swanson and the important inner midfielder Pack. Midfielder Curtis could be back though, he missed the Saturday match due to a minor knock. Not many changes to the lineup are expected as the gaffer believes in not touching a winning squad.
