Danny Cowley’s Portsmouth entertain Joey Barton’s Bristol Rovers at Fratton Park in EFL League One action on Saturday afternoon. Pompey have work to do if they are to claim a play-off place this season, as the Hampshire outfit are currently in eighth spot. Rovers are rock bottom of the division after a poor campaign in League One. Portsmouth will surely take all three points from this one.

Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey seal a crucial win?

Portsmouth are always among the favourites for promotion before a ball is kicked, but Pompey have had a turbulent season in the third tier. The long-serving Kenny Jackett left last month after a poor run, with former Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley taking over at Fratton Park.

Cowley has had a mixed bag of results so far. After four wins on the bounce, Portsmouth have taken just one point from a possible 12, which has seriously hindered their promotion chances. After a disappointing 3-1 loss at Swindon Town last Tuesday, Pompey slipped down to eighth.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0825 GMT, Friday 23 April)

Despite their poor run of results, Portsmouth are still very much in the mix for promotion. Charlton Athletic, who currently occupy the final play-off berth, are just a point ahead. No less than three points will suffice for Cowley’s men this weekend, though.

Bristol Rovers Preview – Gas to crash to a third straight loss?

Bristol Rovers are heading to EFL League Two after a woeful run of results. The Gas have picked up just one victory since beating Accrington Stanley in early March, losing seven of their last nine.

Joey Barton’s troops need to a miracle if they are to pull off the great escape. After the midweek results, Rovers are now nine points adrift of safety with just three games to go.

Before their recent loss to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s in-form Burton Albion, Portsmouth had won two in a row at home, seeing off Ipswich Town and Rochdale (both 2-1). Have a punt on the home win and both teams to score here at 11/4.

The goals have dried up for John Marquis of late, but the 28-year-old can pop up at any given time and score. Marquis will be eager to get his name on the scoresheet against the league’s bottom club this weekend, Pompey’s main man is priced at 10/3 to open the scoring.
