Accrington Preview – Can Accrington land a home win?

There was a decent point for Accrington on the weekend as they earned a draw at Sunderland in an exciting 3-3 draw.

Their home record this season in League One is not bad at all.

Accrington have taken a W10 D5 L6 home record this season in the division.

Of the four defeats that they have suffered on home soil this season, four of them have been against teams above them in the top half of the table.

That’s where Tuesday night’s opponents Portsmouth are at.

There was a victory in their last home game as well, as Accrington took a 2-1 win over Doncaster.

But Accrington are the 29/10 underdogs for the win in this match* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

There has been a clean sheet for Accrington in 38% of their home fixtures, conceding an average of a goal per game.

Of their ten home wins, six of them have been by a single goal margin.

This will be the first meeting between Accrington and Portsmouth this season, having to play each other again right at the end of the season.

Our betting prediction:
Accrington 1 goal winning margin

(odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th)


Accrington produced a big 4-1 win in their last League One home game against Portsmouth and are undefeated in three such fixtures (W2 D1).

The half time draw may be worth playing for here at 6/5 odds* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

That has been the situation in 11 of Accrington’s home League One fixtures this season.

Only on six occasions at home this season have Accrington conceded the first goal in a home league game.

Home and away Accrington have picked up just the one victory in their last five fixtures.

So seeing them get to the victory on the night, looks a little bit of a thin option, but not totally out of the picture..


Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey land crucial away win?

Portsmouth are only outside of the play off places on goal difference behind Oxford and Blackpool.

With only three games remaining they have to pick up a win in this one to keep their hopes alive.

But the form for Portsmouth hasn’t quite been there recently.

Pompey have lost three of their last five league games (W1 D1).

But they did snap their four-match winning streak with a home success over Bristol Rovers on the weekend.

That was a 1-0 win for Pompey against the current bottom side in the table.

Portsmouth are 19/20 to collect the victory in this one* (odds recorded 03:41 GMT April 26th).

That is a little shaky too from a football betting perspective, as they have taken one point from their last three away games.

It has been back to back road defeats for them.

That has moved their away record for this League One campaign on to a W11 D3 L7 return for the season.

Pompey has averaged 1.4 goals per away game this season.

Everything about this League One football betting fixture has the look of being a tight clash.
