Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will look to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday when they take on Accrington in a postponed League One game. The Pompey are 12 points behind the playoffs berth, and with a couple of games in hand, meaning that Tuesday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. All Clark Robertson, Marlon Pack, Zak Swanson, and Ronan Curtis should miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the visitors. Since both teams will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Ryan Astley, Joe Pritchar, David Morgan, and Jay Rich-Baghuelou are out of contention with injuries for the home side.
Highlighted Team (Portsmouth):
During Milan Mandaric’s era at the club, Portsmouth played an important role in the Premier League, with the team finishing their debut season (2003/2004) in the 13th position in the standings. The club impressed in the 2008/2009 season, with Nwankwo Kanu’s goal helping them beat Cardiff City in the FA Cup final.
As a result, Portsmouth represented England in the Europa League, with the team progressing in the group stages of the competition thanks to a win over Vitoria Gimaraes in the final qualifying round. The current club was formed in 2013, but the original amateur club was founded back in 1883. Nowadays Portsmouth host their rivals at Fratton Park, with the venue holding up to 20,620 spectators.
The likes of Sol Campbell, David James, Glen Johnson and aforementioned Nigeria international Nwankwo Kanu are considered one of the club’s most notable players. Portsmouth wear blue shirts, white shorts and red socks when hosting their rivals at Fratton Park, while wearing white and blue colours when playing on the road.
