Portsmouth Preview – Pompey to get back on track with another home win?

Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth have been on an incredible run since the turn of the year. In 2020, Pompey have won 11 of 14 league and cup fixtures. However, they go into Tuesday’s league affair with MK Dons having lost two of their last three in League One.

After a 1-0 defeat at fellow promotion hopefuls Coventry City, Portsmouth hit back with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town in their last home game. Unfortunately for Pompey, they then fell to a 1-0 defeat at Fleetwood Town last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth to score 3+ goals

(odds taken 1545 GMT, Monday 24 February)

Despite those recent losses, Portsmouth have had an excellent 2020 so far. Since a 1-1 draw at Gillingham on New Year’s Day, the Hampshire club have taken 18 points from a possible 24.

Jackett’s side have been sensational at Fratton Park over the last few months. Pompey have won a staggering 12 of their previous 13 league and cup home fixtures. Only rivals Southampton have won on their patch this season. In League One, Portsmouth have won five home encounters on the spin. Will they pick up another three points on home turf in midweek.

MK Dons Preview – Dons to struggle at Fratton Park on Tuesday?

It’s been a testing season for MK Dons. At the time of writing, the Dons are down in 18th place, winning ten, losing 16 and drawing six of 32 matches. However, Milton Keynes have certainly picked up in recent weeks.

Since a 1-0 home reverse to Sunderland on January 18th, MK Dons are unbeaten in five League One matches, winning three and drawing two. Each of the Dons’ last eight league and cup wins have come at Stadium MK, as they have not won on the road since a 3-0 victory at Blackpool in mid-September. Only bottom club Bolton Wanderers have taken fewer away points.

Russell Martin’s revitalised MK Dons will be hoping to cause Portsmouth problems. However, getting anything from Tuesday’s trip to Fratton Park will be a tall order for the Buckinghamshire club.
