Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to regain their spot in top six when they host MK Dons at their Fratton Park on Tuesday evening. The Pompey suffered a 1-0 loss at Fleetwood Town at the weekend, but you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their sixth consecutive win in front of home fans. Seeing that Oliver Hawkins failed to impress in the defeat to Fleetwood, Australia international Ryan Williams is pushing for a start.
The Dons, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over rock-bottom Bolton in their last league fixture, with the team moving away from the danger zone. Since Russell Martin’s men are 13 points clear of the bottom three, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Pompey, who are eyeing promotion to the Championship. MK Dons defeated Portsmouth 3-1 in the first half of the season, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
