Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Peterborough when they take on Barnsley in the League One round 30. The Pompey want to stay in the playoffs race, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s encounter. All Ronan Curtis, Jayden Reid, Joe Rafferty, Clark Robertson, and Tom Lowery have been struggling with injuries of late. The Tykes, on the other hand, recorded a very important 3-1 win over Accrington in their last league match, with the team retaining their spot in top six.
However, beating Portsmouth at Fratton Park is easier said than done, and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Barring any fresh injury worries, Michael Duff should field the same starting XI that faced the Accy Stanley. In their last meeting at the venue, speaking of the League One encounters, the two sides played out a goalless draw.
