Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Portsmouth will be looking to build on a 3-1 win over Milton Keynes Dons when they host Rochdale at their Fratton Park on Matchday 34. The Pompey have been impressive at home ground of late, and you should bear mind that they are eyeing their sixth consecutive home win in the League One. Portsmouth are only five points behind top two in the standings, meaning that they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Rochdale.
John Marquis, who scored his eighth goal of the season in the midweek fixture, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The Dale suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Sunderland and Coventry City in the previous two league matches, with the team remaining in the danger zone. Given Portsmouth’s impressive home record, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
