Odds: 7/5 odds taken 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January

This is a big game for Charlton on home turf to try and improve on their push for promotion.

They start the game in seventh place in the table, one point behind fifth-placed Portsmouth.

But most of the teams above the Addicks have at least a game in hand over them.

Portsmouth have just lost their way a little bit and will be keen to get over their blip to try and stay in the top six.

Charlton Preview – Can the Addicks make the most of home advantage?

The form of Charlton hasn’t been that hot recently. It’s been two wins in their last eight league fixtures.

But both of those wins have been inside their last four fixtures but happened away from The Valley.

Charlton have a home record of W4 D4 L3 for this campaign but they have failed to win any of their last four (D3 L1).

There is a quote of 19/10 on Charlton in the match outright for this game, making them the underdogs* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

The goalscoring output of Charlton has been pretty good on home turf. They average 1.8 goals per home game.

There are only two teams who have scored more goals in League One this season than the Addicks.

The issues have crept in at the back for them as they have no clean sheet in their last seven league home games.

In just four of their eleven home games this season have Charlton scored the opening goal of a game.

It’s only average home form at best and their promotion push has come from a brilliant away record.

So can they find a positive on home soil in this tough fixture?

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth 1 goal winning margin

(odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January)


Charlton did win this corresponding fixture last season by a 2-1 scoreline.

That ended a three-match losing home streak that they had been on against Pompey.

If this game is settled, either way, it’s hard to imagine it being by more than a one-goal margin.

A Charlton 1-goal winning margin comes in at 15/4* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

In their six games played (home and away) against teams currently above them in the table, Charlton are only W1 D1 L4.


Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey rediscover their form?

It has been back to back league defeats for Portsmouth, going down at home against Hull and Lincoln without scoring.

Those were failures against the top two in the league at the moment.

But Pompey did have a very good away form this season at W7 D2 L1.

They are on a three-match winning streak on their travels, each of those coming with a clean sheet.

Portsmouth have taken a clean sheet in six of their last eight league fixtures now, home and away combined.

A Portsmouth to win to nil option is at 7/2* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

We can examine their away form a little deeper as it’s been excellent against the stronger teams.

They have won all three away games against teams currently in the top six.

That includes road victories at Hull and Lincoln, the top two.
