Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth and Wycombe, the two teams who missed out on a spot in the League One playoffs, face each other at Fratton Park in what is expected to be an interesting game. The Pompey are undefeated in the previous ten league matches, but that did not help them secure a top-six finish. Anyhow, the hosts surely want to give fans some cheer on the last day of the regular season. All Dale, Robertson, and Raggett are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Lincoln and Cheltenham in the previous two league fixtures. Since Portsmouth are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. Both Lewis Wing and Christie Ward are pushing for a start.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
