AFC Wimbledon vs Portsmouth
English League One
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Cherry Red Records Fans’ Stadium (Kingston upon Thames).
Pompey will be looking for a rebound win on Saturday when they travel to Surrey to take on the struggling AFC Wimbledon in the 13th round of League One. Portsmouth got off to a flying start to the new season, establishing themselves as one of the main promotional challengers.
The visitors were undefeated in opening 11 games of the season, but their phenomenal streak came to an end last weekend when they surprisingly fell to bottom-half Gillingham 0-2 at Fratton Park. Kenny Jackett’s troops are still three points clear at the very top of the standings and they should really not be too intimidated with the mentioned loss.
AFC Wimbledon vs Portsmouth: Head-to-head
Teams have four wins apiece coming into the landmark 10th head to head encounter.
Pompey earned the domestic double over the Dons via two league wins (0-2 and 2-1).
AFC Wimbledon, however came on top when teams played each other in the League Cup this August, clinching a 1-2 victory away at Fratton Park.
AFC Wimbledon vs Portsmouth: Prediction
AFC Wimbledon are just not pulling up any trees at the start of the season. They sit 20th with league low 9 goals scored in 12 games so far. Neal Ardley was desperate to see his men failing to find the net once again last weekend when the Dons fell 1-0 away at Plymouth Argyle.
The Dons thus lost five of last six matches across competitions. It’s certainly not a record you’d be proud of coming into match with the table-toppers. We thus see this match as a fantastic opportunity for Portsmouth to return on the winning ways.
Pompey were fabulous in outings away from Fratton Park so far in the season. They won five and drew one of six games on the road so far in League One and just have to be considered heavy favourites against the struggling opposition here.
