Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be aiming to retain their spot in top six when they take on Plymouth on Matchday 6. The Pompey kicked off the new League One campaign in style, with the team beating all Fleetwood, Crewe, and Shrewsbury, but the team than suffered a dip in form. Portsmouth aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Wigan, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Pilgrims. Experienced attacker John Marquis is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Plymouth, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run to five games. The Pilgrims have been in a fine form of late, and, taking everything into account, we predict that they are going to grab something from Monday’s football game. You should bear in mind that the two sides shared the spoils in each of their previous three meetings in the English third tier.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
