Portsmouth Preview – Will Pompey return to winning ways in midweek?

Portsmouth’s away form could really damage their promotion hopes this season. Their results away from Fratton Park has been their Achilles heel, as Pompey crashed to yet another away loss last time out. This time they were beaten by two goals to nil at Peterborough United last Saturday.

However, Kenny Jackett’s troops have had no such problems at home, winning 12 and drawing five of 17 in League One. Only Wycombe Wanderers, who have played a game more, have a better home record up until now. Incredibly, 41 of their 59 league points have come at Fratton Park this term.

Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 goals

Before losing 2-0 at Premier League Arsenal in their last home game, Portsmouth had won ten league and cup matches in a row on their own patch. Both of their home defeats have come against Premier League opposition (Southampton). The Hampshire club could really do with a home win on Tuesday to get their automatic promotion bid back on track.

Fleetwood Town Preview – Can Barton’s boys leave Fratton Park with a positive result?

Joey Barton is doing a fine job at Fleetwood Town these days. The Cod Army are only out of the play-off zone on goal difference, as Town have picked up an impressive 59 points from 34 league matches. Fleetwood have been very hard to beat, with just leaders Coventry City losing fewer games up until now.

Town have been on an incredible unbeaten run in recent months. Since losing 1-0 at Burton Albion in league action on January 11th, Fleetwood are undefeated in 11 League One affairs, winning six and drawing five.
