Portsmouth vs Fleetwood Town Prediction & Match Preview

Portsmouth vs Fleetwood Town
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 10 March 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Fratton Park.

The competition in the league is getting heated up as it nears the final round. All teams in the top 10 have an equal chance for promotion.

Portsmouth is equal on points with Fleetwood Town. Both sides are winless in their last league action. The hosts lost away to fourth place Peterborough with the final score of 2-0. Fleetwood was held for a goalless draw in front of their home crowd by Blackpool. Both sides are moreover the same in terms of their attacking and defensive strength, but the team with better morale will get a narrow win on Tuesday.

Portsmouth vs Fleetwood Town: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Fleetwood Town won the reverse fixture by just one goal.
  • Portsmouth has 4 wins and a loss in the last 5 head to head matches.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their last 5 meetings.
  • Pompey has won 2 of their recent clashes with Fleetwood at this ground.
  • In the three h2h games at this venue, the visitors have only 1 win.

Portsmouth vs Fleetwood Town: Prediction

Pompey is the only team to remain unbeaten at home this season. Of the 17 matches here, they have won 12 and the rest were draws.  An active 7 match win streak is also going on for them at this ground. So the visitors will have to pull off a miracle to get 3 points on Tuesday.

The Cod Army are also unbeaten in their 5 previous matches on the road and have managed a win over Sunderland recently. They scored in 4 away games on the trot so we can expect them to do the same. I am backing a home win with a narrow scoreline at Fratton Park.

Portsmouth has a clean sheet in 10 of their last 20 matches. They have scored plenty at home and have one of the best defensive performances at home this season. Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in their last 3 away game played by Fleetwood. Since both teams are defensively strong I am backing a low scoring match with less than 2.5 goals.

Portsmouth vs Fleetwood Town: Betting Tips

  • Home team to win @ 1.50 (1/2).
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.73 (8/11).
