Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Fratton Park when Portsmouth and Hull City square off against each other in the League One derby. Portsmouth impressed in a 4-0 win over AFC Wimbledon, with the team extending their winning run in the league to three games. The Pompey are eyeing their sixth home win of the season, but the Tigers should not be written off just yet. Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett can count on key players for the League One derby.
Hull City, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Accrington. The Tigers are eyeing automatic promotion to the Championship as well, but given their three-match winless run on the road, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Pompey. Reece Burkey returns from suspension for the visitors, while Callum Jones and Martin Samuelsen remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450.
Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider.
Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
