Doncaster vs Portsmouth Prediction

The hosts are steadily climbing up the ladder and have admitted defeat just once since the start of the new season. Their last clash on the road saw them force Coventry to share the spoils with them while at home they took down Peterborough comfortably with a 2-0 scorecard.

On the other hand, their counterparts have tasted success just twice so far and are currently seven points shy of being level with the hosts on the table. The visitors ended a three-game winless run in all competitions the other week by pulling off a narrow 1-0 win at home over the rock bottom side Bolton.

To make matter worse for the Portsmouth faithful, the away side have been a nervous bunch in their outings, and have not picked up a win in any of their last four trips on the road, the most recent of which was a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Wycombe.

Furthermore, the hosts have come out on top in four of their previous six home games. However, half of their last four meetings with this foe here have ended in a tie. Hence backing a double chance is the safest punt in this one.

Additionally, it needs saying that there has been no dearth of goals in their previous head to head matches here, with four out of their last six witnessing goals down either end. Considering that Doncaster have also managed to keep clean sheet just once in all of their clashes on home soil so far, count on Portsmouth to grab at least a consolation goal by the end of the ninety minutes.
