Our prediction for this match:
Portsmouth play host to Gillingham at their Fratton Park in the League One round 32. The Pompey aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Oxford United, with the team aiming to regain their spot in top two, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Gillingham. Experienced midfielder Michael Jacobs misses the midweek clash with injury, and he is unlikely to feature against Gillingham.
The Gills, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the League One of late. Since they produce much better showings at home than on the travels, we believe that there is s a big value in betting on the Pompey. In the first half of the season Portsmouth defeated Gillingham 2-0 at Priestfield Stadium, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
