For our Portsmouth vs. Morecambe prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.
Portsmouth continue their attempt to wriggle their way into the play-off places in the finals stretch of the season as they face Morecambe in League One on Monday.
Portsmouth currently sit 9th in League One with sixteen wins, fourteen draws and ten losses from forty games this season.
Pompey have had a strange season in that a total collapse in form following an excellent start to the campaign had their promotion hopes looking all but over by Christmas, but a late season revival means they now stand an outside chance of squeezing into the top six should results elsewhere go their way in these final weeks of the season.
They enter this game in good form having won three and drawn two of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw with MK Dons.
The draw with MK Dons was an underwhelming result for the South Coast side but having been reduced to ten men after just 39 minutes while leading 1-0 they can be forgiven for dropping points here.
Their form at home is decent having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games on home soil so they should fancy themselves to get back to winning ways here.
Pompey are five points shy of the play-off spots with just six games remaining so while their chances of a top six finish are alive they are fairly slim. All they can do is continue to pick up wins and they should do that here.
Morecambe currently sit 23rd in League One with seven wins, thirteen draws and twenty-one losses from forty-one games this season.
Morecambe have had a dismal campaign in League One which many people anticipated coming into the season and they now look odds on to drop down to League Two with just five games remaining in their fixture list.
They enter this game in poor form having failed to win any of their last nine matches while losing four of their last five games.
Their most recent encounter saw them fall to a 1-3 defeat at home to Plymouth Argyle, a result that cannot be held against them too heavily given Plymouth are the league leaders.
Their away form is equally poor having drawn one and lost four of their last five games on the road, with their three most recent defeats coming by an aggregate scoreline of 9-1.
Morecambe did take a point off Portsmouth when the two sides met back in November so can at least take confidence from that, but as they sit five points shy of safety with five games remaining their chances of clawing their way out of the relegation zone are becoming increasingly fine.
