          Wigan Athletic make the trip to Fratton Park to take on Portsmouth on Saturday in League One. Portsmouth have clinched the title already and look to grab as many points as possible, whereas Wigan aim to make the jump into the top half of the table.

          Colby Bishop opened the scoring early for Pompey in the third minute but Matt Butcher equalised for Wycombe within four minutes. Another goal from Bishop regained the lead for Portsmouth before halftime and in the second half Christian Saydee secured the 3 - 1 win for Pompey. A big game at the top of the table saw Portsmouth host Derby County. Joe Ward gave Derby the lead but Abu Kamara equalised for Pompey just four minutes later. Ward scored again to give Derby the lead before halftime but Owen Moxon popped up with a goal to grab a 2 - 2 draw for Portsmouth.

          Portsmouth were back to winning ways against Shrewsbury. An own goal from Chey Dunkley gave Pompey the lead in the third minute but Jordan Shipley equalised for Shrewsbury before the 30 minute mark. A penalty from Bishop regained the lead for Pompey before halftime and another goal from him wrapped up a 3 - 1 win for Portsmouth. Another big game saw Portsmouth take on Bolton. Kamara was on the scoresheet again for Portsmouth early on but Aaron Collins equalised for Bolton to force a 1 - 1 draw.

          The last time out for Portsmouth was against Barnsley. Devante Cole opened the scoring for Barnsley in the sixth minute but Kusini Yengi equalised within three minutes. John McAtee regained the lead for Barnsley on the hour but a penalty from Bishop and a goal from Conor Shaughnessy gave Portsmouth the 3 - 2 win.

          Wigan, on the other hand, currently sit 15th in League One. In 44 games, Wigan have 18 wins, ten draws and 16 losses which leaves them on 56 points, two points from the top half of the table.

          An own goal from Samuel Joseph Hughes gave Wigan the lead on the stroke of halftime. However, early in the second half, John Brayford equalised for Burton. Despite having five shots on target and 70% of the possession, Wigan were unable to score again and the game finished in a 1 - 1 draw. Martial Godo was on the scoresheet for Wigan but it wasn’t enough as a brace from Gassan Ahadme and a goal from Danny Andrew gave Cambridge the 3 - 1 win.

          Wigan registered 14 shots with three of them on target, but were unable to find the back of the net. Port Vale were also unable to convert any of their shots on target in a 0 - 0 draw.
