Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be aiming to build on a 4-2 win over Burton when they take on MK Dons at their Fratton Park. The Pompey produced their best display of the season at the weekend, with the triumph giving them a confidence boost. Portsmouth aim to keep on climbing the standings, and we are positive that the playoffs-chasing side will go all guns blazing at MK Dons.
Russell Martin’s troops, on the other hand, have yet to record a win in the League One this season. The Dons aim to put an end to their four-match winless run in the English third tier, but beating Portsmouth on the road is easier said than done. The Pompey aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend.
