Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Morecambe, Portsmouth will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they face Gillingham in their last home game of the season. The Pompey missed out on a place in the playoffs, but they surely want to finish the 2021/2022 campaign in style. All Downing, Freeman, Hackett-Fairchild, and Harness remain in the recovery room, while both Harness and Thompson have recovered from their respective injuries.
The Gills, on the other hand, are fighting tooth and nail to survive in the League One. Gillingham are only one point clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from Saturday’s clash. Taking everything into account, we believe that both teams should be happy with one point from the Fratton Park showdown. USA international Charlie Kelman is banned for the visiting side.
