Portsmouth vs Peterborough
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 30th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Fratton Park (Portsmouth).
Portsmouth is already assured of a place in the playoffs and has been fantastic all through this season. As of now, they are just four points below the table-toppers, and with their game in hand, the team surely does have a shot at the title, and even if they fall short of that, they can aim for the direct-promotion spot, which would eliminate their post-season formality all together.
Peterborough has a slim chance to make it to the playoffs, but they need to put in great performances in both of their remaining fixtures, starting with this one. It might trouble them that they are on the road against an in-form team, but the squad simply does not have any other go.
