Fleetwood v Portsmouth Predictions

League One tips and odds for one of the division's standout fixtures this Saturday as promotion-pushers Portsmouth travel to play-off chasing Fleetwood Town.

These two sides played out a goalless draw a month ago at Fratton Park in a game a little lacking in pure footballing quality but made more memorable for its ill-tempered nature, with seven yellow cards in the first half alone. On that occasion, Portsmouth were guilty of profligacy and inefficiency, dominating possession and territory but sending just two of their 16 shots on target - the dropped points cost them going top of the table that night, which experienced coach Kenny Jackett will be looking to put right.

This is set to be Fleetwood's first outing in the league since Boxing Day, with the post-Joey Barton era beginning with a 3-2 EFL Trophy defeat at Hull City in midweek. Club chairman Andy Pilley has insisted there will be rush in appointing a full-time successor to Barton, who led the club to a play-off finish last season, with interim coach Simon Wiles getting an opportunity to impress.

Prior to Barton's shock sacking earlier this month, the Trawlermen had won just one of their seven previous League One outings, registering three successive draws with Boxing Day's 1-1 at Crewe.

Portsmouth, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from a disappointing week - remaining on Hull's tail for second, three points behind with a game in hand. Last Sunday they were left disappointed with a 2-1 defeat at Bristol City, and in midweek they were also eliminated from the EFL Trophy as a much-changed XI lost 5-1 at Peterborough, with Jackett very much sending a message that promotion is the priority. The league form has been much better - it's three 2-0 wins and one 0-0 draw from the last four outings, as they look to make it a fifth consecutive clean sheet in League One here.

Fleetwood, at home back in February last year, beat Pompey 2-0: it's their only win from their last six meetings (three defeats, two draws).

PORTSMOUTH TO WIN TO NIL @ 3/1

Fleetwood Team News

With an interim coach comes some potential surprises, but don't expect to see the new face make drastic changes as he looks to a dependable core of players, with goalkeeper Joel Coleman the only confirmed injury absence, with Jayson Leutwiler expected to continue in his place.

Paddy Madden will now take sole centre-forward responsibility now, following Ched Evans' move to Preston. The striker scored in the defeat at Hull in midweek and may be buoyed by becoming the main man now, while the form of attacking midfielder Callum Camps - top scorer with eight goals - means that the goalscoring load will still be shared.

Expect to see experienced centre-half Charlie Mulgrew continue at the back alongside Callum Connolly, with Sam Finley and Jordan Rossiter at the base of midfield.

UNDER 2.5 GOALS @ 8/11

Portsmouth Team News

Don't expect to see any of the second-string side that were heavily beaten at Peterborough in the midweek cup clash to be given another chance here, as the senior, tried-and-trusted regulars come back in, with Craig MacGillivray to come back in between the sticks after debutant goalkeeper Duncan Turnbull shipped five goals against Posh.

Key man Ronan Curtis remains a big absence, having recently tested positive for coronavirus, while Lee Brown is in line to come back in at left-back, having returned from injury in the cup defeat at Bristol City.

Expect to see the physical presence of John Marquis up top as ever, with nine goals so far this campaign, with Australian attacker Ryan Williams in line to feature in a supporting role in attack.
