This is a big one for Lincoln as they look to put some further distance between themselves and Portsmouth.

This is a top-seven battle with the Imps currently standing five points better off than Pompey.

So with it having been good seasons for both, this should be a great contest on Tuesday night.

Lincoln Preview – Can the Imps get back to winning ways

Lincoln had an upset in league action on Saturday as they were toppled by Doncaster at the Keepmoat.

That saw the Imps miss the chance at four straight wins in the league.

But overall they still look in very good shape.

However Lincoln are the 9/5 underdogs for Tuesday night’s game* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

One of the big features of the solid recent form by Lincoln is their defence, which has been really tough to crack.

It has been just one goal conceded by Licnoln in their last five games.

Their home record this season in league action is W4 L1 and they have taken back to back home wins in their current form.

So they are going to be a big threat to the visiting Pompey in this game.

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth 1-goal winning margin

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November)


Lincoln have averaged 1.6 goals per home game in this campaign, while they have conceded just two goals in their five home fixtures.

Both of those goals against them came in a 2-1 reverse against Bristol Rovers. So that is four clean sheets in five from them at home.

Each of Lincoln’s last five league games have gone under 2.5 goals.

The under 2.5 goals betting option for this game is at 4/5* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

The Imps have failed to win any of their last three home games against Portsmouth, losing the last two.

This is as good of a chance as any to turn that around.


Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey close the gap?

Porsmtoth suffered a loss on the weekend. They were playing host to Charlton and suffered a 2-0 reverse.

That saw Charlton move a couple of places above Portsmouth who were left in seventh place.

It has been an unbeaten return from Portsmouth out on their travels this season in League One.

They have taken an excellent W3 L1 record from their away games so far.

That includes a very good win that they secured at the Stadium of Light against Sunderland in their last road game.

Pompey have scored at least two goals in each of their last five games and they are averaging 2.25 per away fixture so far.

So that’s been an excellent return and perhaps part of the reason why they are the 6/4 outright favourites in football betting* (odds taken 04:49 GMT, Sunday, 1st November).

It has been back to back away wins at Lincoln for Portsmouth and they have not conceded in their last two such games either.

Despite each taking a hit on the weekend, there has been nothing wrong with the form of either of these lately.

Lincoln scored an excellent 1-0 home win over second-placed Ipswich in their last home game.

Portsmouth won at Sunderland in their last away fixture. So it’s really tough to split them.
