Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Fratton Park when Portsmouth and Peterborough go head to head in the League One derby. The Pompey aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Blackpool, and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fourth home win of the season. This game comes too early for attacking midfielder Jacobs, who is likely to return to contention next week. The Posh, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday evening.
Peterborough aim to regain their spot in top two, but keep in mind that important winger Joe Ward is going to miss the Portsmouth game with injury. In their last meeting in the League One Peterborough defeated Portsmouth 2-0, and we predict that the Pompey are going to get their revenge on the Posh on Saturday afternoon.

Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
